Description

Cliff ranges from 45ish to 80 feet, with varied rock quality, though generally as or more solid than the main cliff. Routes tend to be fairly moderate and low angled with short, reachy, cruxes. All hardware is SS, mostly glue in, and installed no earlier than 2018, but a set of nuts and some small cams is needed for some routes.
   This cliff is on town land, and I have been told it was donated for recreational use, including rock climbing, when I inquired. That said, there has been some vandalism and theft to property owners on the road  who now are a bit wary of strangers. Be polite, be discreet, and be respectful of the wonderful rural resource we have here in the upper upper valley. Expect some dirt, lichen, and keep an eye out for loose rock, wear your helmet!

Getting There

From VT-113 turn on Eagle Hollow Road. Drive just under a mile onto the dirt road.
Park between the two guardrails prior to the top of the hill, parallel to a slow roadside stream.
If you get to the crest of the hill and begin driving downhill, you've gone too far.

10-15 minute appoach:
Cross stream and walk east into Vershire Town Forest. Climbers trail is unblazed. Follow along the rock outcroppings up a steady slope  until you reach a large 30' boulder (5-8 minutes), cut left and up, continuing up the hill from this point towards the ledge. A fallen birch tree  lies along the base of the slope that leads to the hillcrest facing Lasso Ledge. If you find it, head straight up. To reach the base of Lasso, take a short and stable walk up some scree that will put you at the base of large hemlock and a bench log.

At any point you see a clearing off to your right with old truck tires, boulders, and other farm equipments—you're close, just too low on the hill. Cut left and head straight up to the ledge.
