Smugglers' Notch, Lake Willoughby, and several other small, high-quality areas offer steep, continuously sustained, ice flows and mixed climbing rom 50 to 500 feet in length. Approaches can vary from drive-up cragging (Bolton Quarry) to hour-long slogs (Smugglers' Notch and Snake Mountain) up steep, snowy slopes. Regardless, Vermont has it in abundance during the winter months.
In a nutshell:
Lake Whilloughby: If you want to cut your teeth on WI5. Welcome to the jungle.
Smuggler's Notch: Everything from WIfun to WI5 with tons of obscure, hard mixed routes to offer.
Bristol Cliffs: Excellent two-pitch WI3/4 with a second hidden wall of WI5. Parking can be tricky.
Snake Mountain: The mysterious mixed climbing haven of New England. Routes here as hard as M13 have been established.
Bolton: Accessible toproping at the quarry as well as random multipitch strewn throughout the valley.
Wiliamstown/Brookfield: Easy roadside multipitch in a quiet setting.
