Boulders Behind the Main Parking Lot/Visitor Center Rock Climbing
Can't remember if this was Pac-man or Biscuit.
These boulders are spread out on the East side of the Notch (Mt. Mansfield side), and are directly behind the visitor center, bathrooms, and main parking lot.
Within this densely packed area of boulders lives the highest concentration of quality problems in the Notch. Screaming highballs (General Patton's Arete--V3), to short, stubby core-intensive problems (Fishman--V5), to classics (Pac-Man--V3/4); this area can keep you busy for quite a while. Many of the problems in this area dry out quickly due to the elevation and exposure.
Navigating the maze of boulders and caves can be a little frustrating, so find a local to give you the proper tour.
Top of Mountain Road (108). Park at the Main Lot with the bathrooms next to it. The boulders begin directly in front of the lot/visitor center.

Start by using a couple horrible pistol grips / pinches and some feet scummed under the roof then perform a very powerful deadpoint. Final moves must be campused. (hint - throw your feet really high to start - seriously). Rumor has it that some footholds have broken and upped the grade to V8/9 or something but I remember my feet being crap anyways so not sure if that changes the problem or not....[more] Browse More Classics in VT
