The side of a blasted wall along railroad tracks. Not worth a long trip, but nice to stop by if you are in the area.

Getting There 

From Interstate 89, take exit 15 and head east towards St Michael's college. After roughly a mile, turn left on to lime kiln road. Cross the bridge over the river and park in the parking lot. Walk back across the bridge, and then hike down to the railroad tracks (which also go under the bridge). Go north (right if facing downhill) and walk for a minute or so, and the wall will be on your right. Overall less than a 5 minute approach.

The only bolted line on this wall. Start out beneath the first bolt, and climb straight up until you clip your second bolt. Then traverse right a few feet and use the protruding rock on your right to continue up. After clipping the fourth bolt, make your way to the left (you will see the fifth bolt). There is no anchor, but the top out is easy enough to walk up. Top out, and repel off the tree. Currently, there is a sixth bolt over the top out which lacks a hanger....[more]   Browse More Classics in VT

The climbs over the railroad tracks are all short and chossy, but good for getting a quick fix. If one were to look around they might even find a nice 5.8 sport route around nearby....

They sure are, unless there used to be an anchor... (we just sling the tree up top). Thankfully I have never taken a fall on them, but I have bounce tested them and they seem solid.
