Description

Home to dozens of amazing ice climbs, Smuggler's Notch also has some of Vermont's best rock climbing. The area can either be very busy or totally empty - it's safe to count on a small crowd though. Buy the Peckham guidebook and you'll realize there is a LOT more roped climbing than what is posted here on Mountain Project.

If your passion for climbing is of the baby cliff variety Mountain Project to be your best resource unless you're a local and have the sneak preview to the coming soon electronic guidebook.

Getting There

Park on Rt. 108 where the road ends (seasonal road - don't try to drive up it, tickets are typically around $150 and the State Troopers love to hand em out).

Ski, snowshoe or hike up the road a mile or two to get to your climb - the climbs are obvious and located on both sides of the road.
