Description 

Pisgah Crag is a small crag north of the main cliff, just a few minutes hike from route 5A along Willoughby Lake. The cliff is perched just above the road overlooking the lake. Good quality rock facing west with lots of shade. Great destination for a mid summer after work climb and swim.

Getting There 

Park in the large pull off on the lake side of the road just south of the waterfall on route 5A along Willoughby Lake.

No defined trail but two general approach paths. Walk across the road and scramble directly up the steep bank with loose rock and dirt. Or, walk down the road 100 yards and head up the large vegetated bank into the woods. The hillside will level out, continue left along an animal trail until you reach the cliff. 5 minute approach.

2 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a PG13  VT : Pisgah Crag
A great crack corner tainted by difficult, hard to protect and often wet moves to get off the ground. Once you get established into the corner the climbing is great with good hand jambs and great gear. Follow the corner up past a small cedar tree until you can pull out of the corner through steep bulges and big holds to a tree belay. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in VT
