Groton High Grade

5.13, Sport, 60 ft,  Avg: 4 from 3 votes
FA: Peter Kamitses, Oct. 15, 2006
Vermont > Marshfield Ledge

Description

The Groton High Grade.  The route that defines the ledge.  Classic.  Edges and crimps on steep terrain lead to a bouldery crux.  A delicate throw off bad holds gains the arete.  Better holds and wonderful exposure continue up to the chains.  

Location

The route is at the top, center of the cliff. One must climb 2 pitches to gain the High Grade ledge. The easiest way to access the High Grade Ledge is to climb the first 2 pitches of Ledge Connector and scramble left.

Protection

The route clips 8 bolts to a 2-bolt chain anchor.
