Bolton Quarry Parking Lot and Route Guide:

  • Description 

    Bolton Quarry in Bolton VT. Area is somewhat sensitive but rock is VT schist which lends itself to subtle climbing. Many easy to moderate climbing in the quarry proper plus harder routes (up to 5.12) exist on the short-but-stout Cat's Ass Wall.


    Getting There 

    Get off of route 89 onto route 2 in either Richmond (if coming from north) or Waterbury (if coming from south) until you see Green Mountain Drive. Follow the drive way all the way to the top until you see the small parking area. Please drive under 10 mph once you are on green mountain drive as the locals are very sensitive to speeding and noise. Speeding will threaten access to this area.

    The Cat's Ass 5.11d 7a 24 VIII E5 6a  VT : Bolton Area : Bolton Quarry
    Delicate face climbing leads to an undercling move over a bulge. Some more moves lead to the crux which is a big lock-off using a small crimp to a sloping lip that must be mantled for the RP. Crux can be a heart-breaker. Probably the best pound for pound route in the quarry....[more]   Browse More Classics in VT
