Last pitch of Fastest Gun
The Lake Champlain Region encompasses a multitude of crags, cliff lines, and mountains that are concentrated between Route 9 and Interstate 87 within the Park. The region extends all the way to Lake Champlain, though the majority of the climbing exists around the I-87 corridor.
