Description 

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.


Getting There 

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.

The "Nemesis Traverse" is marked by a hard start, followed by a fun traverse, and then a necky finish.Sit start this problem on the far right side of the boulder/roof directly in front of the lot. Figure out how you are going to master the start, then get into the fun traverse on mostly large hold. As your endurance dwindles, begin to think about how you're going to turn the roof at the far left end. Mantel, thrutch, and claw your way over the roof at the end, and celebrate. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in VT
