The Quarry, while not a destination in and of itself, is underrated and the climbs are (I think) of reasonably decent quality with a few 3 star routes like Anxious and Cat's Ass. There's definitely some choss there that's not worth climbing on but so what? I fully expect Chris to make fun of me for saying I like the Quarry.

Don't worry Chris, soon I'll add a section for the Winooski Cut and then you'll have plenty more eye-rolling and head-shaking for me. Jun 1, 2013
I was pleasantly surprised by this line - not only for the quality of the climbing on quarried rock, but also its length! I was using a 70M and I honestly think I was near the half point of the rope after lowering. It's not a very sustained route, but the moves are thought provoking and fun. Mar 10, 2013
It was April, 1999. Geesh, we're getting old! Feb 1, 2011
