These boulders are located at the apex of the hill and contain some of the best problems in the northeast. The rock here is slick schist which is bad in two conditions rain and heat. If it does begin to rain you can count on waiting for the climbs to dry.
Walk 100 yards uphill from the parking lot. Expect motorcycles whizzing by, and gigantic rv's that could crush you. Walk along the road with caution.

You make a move up to a terrible two finger pocket that nearly ripped all of my skin off. Then slap your feet on terrible edges and smear on the left part of the arete. Make a very difficult move up to a terrible hold on the lip. Slap a large bucket and finish....[more] Browse More Classics in VT
