Boulders Behind the Main Parking Lot/Visitor Center
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.

We called it J.S.C because, we figured that Johnson State College deserves some love, and after all, this climb was put up by two JSC students. Also this climb is hard moves between poor crimpers.After many attempts and broken holds (4 times to be exact) the climb finally went. The movements on the climb are spectacular and while some of the holds are sh...[more] Browse More Classics in VT
