|Great Area, I grew up in Burlington and never knew this was here. The hike in is lengthy but well worth it, and pretty much guarantee's you have the cliff to yourself.|

Mile of Ledges
The following information is referenced from, TUNXIS TRAIL Mile of Ledges, written by Michael Kodas for CRUX NORTHEAST, August/September 1994.
An interesting area containing some difficult cracks, roofs, and faces. Not a short approach, but worth it for the adventuresome.
The cliff follows a zig-zag course, with an outside corner near either end and an inside corner formed by a wide crack and chimney. In the middle of the central face there is a crack that climbs through two roofs – Vitti’s Vendetta 5.10+; a face climb on the same face, just left of the aręte – Hackette’s Heirloom 5.9; around the corner boulder problem moves lead to a ledge topped by an overhanging face and lunge finish – The Longest Mile 5.11; parallel to The Longest Mile is another overhanging wall, located to the left of the wide inside corner, which ascends the difficult face – Tunxis Twister 5.12-. Other routes climb the inside corner and broach the roof of the main face left of the crack.
