I was up hiking here the other day and stumbled upon this small crag which is home to some of new bolts from what I saw (10+ sport routes and multiple possible trad lines). Does anyone have any information on this area? It looks like it's in the very early stages of development. Anyways, part of the quarry itself has seem damage from rock extraction in the past but other parts have clean looking lines.

I looked everywhere online and couldn't find a thing.. Yes, Southern Vermont near Manchester. Maybe it's more of a local place at the moment but anyways it was about a 25 minute hike in and I'm planning to head back to check out the lines they've already set up very soon. I'd honestly say there's opportunity for 50 or so routes in the quarry.

I know the guy - pm me for more info. Good guy has put up all the routes himself and would love help. He indicates there is definitely potential for more.
