Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionSome of the best climbing in the Bolton area. Sport climbing from 5.7 to 5.12, trad climbing from 5.7 to 5.11+, a few offwidths, some chimneys, roofs and even cracks... What more could you ask for? Also home to the infamous Vermont classics The Rose and The Thorn.
Definitely check out the guidebook Tough Schist as there is much more than what is listed here.

Climbing After Rain
With such a variation of height, overhang, and aspect, there is a huge difference in whether climbs dry after rain quickly or not. This list isn't perfect or totally comprehensive but should steer you in the right direction.
Routes that typically stay dry or dry quickly:
It's Not a Cruise (True Value)
Doug the Subway Fugitive
Routes that tend to seep or take a little longer to dry:
Take Back Vermont
Take Back Vermont From Behind
Dr. Diaz (Bottom)
Fresh Meat (Bottom)
Against the Grain
Getting ThereGo past Lower West on Bolton Notch Road for about 3 miles until you reach the Long Trail intersection on the left. Hike along the long trail crossing a stream using rocks or a fallen log. A few minutes later turn right upon reaching a sign which directs you to split off to the cliff. The first rock on the left is the Booty Area.
