Comments: So good. This route deserves all of the stars it gets. Great exposure, fun moves, and one poorly placed bolt adds to the spice of the route. So, so, so good.

Comments: I did this route about a year ago and wussed out and traversed to the anchors out left (extension of Exoduster.) Finally got on it again this weekend when I saw someone had bailed and left 2 nuts, a sling and 3 biners. I agree, the traverse is very spicy. I got rope burn pulling rope across my leg I was so sketched.

Comments: This route was a lot of fun for me. Not typical RRG, but very reminiscent of the New River Gorge. Thought it was a great line.

Comments: Joe,

I just wanted to chime in here on the access thing. I'm president of VT's climbing club and Bozoo is super critical to us. It's a great destination to take beginners and teach people.

That being said, we went through the whole access ordeal when the signs were posted and after going through a few people, a local to the area who knows and has close contact with the new land owner informed us that those signs are to keep hunters out. Climbers are fine.
