Description 

Located in South Royalton right on Vermont route 14, Riverside Walls offers a handful of mixed sport/trad climbs, with bolted anchors for top roping. Climbs are all pretty much slab, and range from around 5.6 to 5.10d. About half a dozen boulder problems are there, too. These also range on the easier to moderate side. The vast majority of information here was taken from the CRAG-VT forums here

Creepy Caterpillar 5.8 5b 16 VI- HVS 4c  VT : Riverside Walls : Trad Wall
Start 5 right of The Donkey. Climb straight up to the MT ledge. Clip high and then enjoy the delicate crux. Easier climbing after the 4th bolt will take you to the anchors. Delicate moves on good rock. Perhaps a bit spicy if 5.7 is the top of your game....[more]   Browse More Classics in VT

CONDITION REPORT 

A friend climbed Shiester on the Sport Wall yesterday. After cleaning the anchor and setting up the rappel, one of the bolts popped out.

Be careful and use good judgment when trusting the bolts here - or set natural anchors.
