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!
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.
