Zach Landis crimping up Groton High Grade (5.13) w...

For access issues: please review


Peter says this is the best sport pitch in Vermont. If it wasn't so freaking hard I would agree. The route starts on good crimps at the base of a large, overhanging wall. The crimps get worse and climb sustained 5.12 to a 5.13 boulder move than 5.11 to the chains. Great endurance climbing on overhanging granite, a rarity in Vermont.


The route is at the top, center of the cliff. One must climb 2 pitches to gain the High Grade ledge. The easiest way to access the High Grade Ledge is to climb the first 2 pitches of Ledge Connector and scramble left.


The route clips 8 bolts to a 2-bolt chain anchor.
