Description 

The Lake Champlain Region encompasses a multitude of crags, cliff lines, and mountains that are concentrated between Route 9 and Interstate 87 within the Park. The region extends all the way to Lake Champlain, though the majority of the climbing exists around the I-87 corridor.


Getting There 

Interstate 87 (The Northway) between exits 29 and 33 is where the majority of the climbing in this region resides. From Vermont, you can take one of the three ferries that crosses Lake Champlain, or you can drive south around the Lake via the Crown Point Bridge.

This route is marked by an 8 foot high right leaning ramp. The top of the ramp gives way to a splitter hand crack with a pine tree growing out of it 30 feet up. Jam the crack past the tree until the crack widens (3.5-4). Exit the crack to gain a clean slab with a finger crack at its top. Climb the finger crack to the slung pine tree.
