DescriptionBolton Quarry in Bolton VT. Area is somewhat sensitive but rock is VT schist which lends itself to subtle climbing. Many easy to moderate climbing in the quarry proper plus harder routes (up to 5.12) exist on the short-but-stout Cat's Ass Wall.
Sensitive Area Details
Locals have agreed to allow open access to Green Mountain Rd. into the Quarry. There have been some issues in the past about speeding so drive slow and be respectful to anyone who you meet (many of them like to hike into the quarry and the neighboring trails)
Getting ThereGet off of route 89 onto route 2 in either Richmond (if coming from north) or Waterbury (if coming from south) until you see Green Mountain Drive. Follow the drive way all the way to the top until you see the small parking area. Please drive under 10 mph once you are on green mountain drive as the locals are very sensitive to speeding and noise. Speeding will threaten access to this area.
