Some of the best hard sport climbing in Vermont. Come with a rack of draws and some determination.

Unlike most crags in Vermont, MP is pretty much comprehensive for the steep wall save a few variations and linkups (though they are quality!)

Getting There 

To get to the steep wall, hike past the lower main wall until the ground rises and locate a fixed line on your left.

The route Team America begins halfway up the fixed line. The rest of the routes are up on the ledge with the first route at the anchor being Encryption/Firewall.

Fixed Draws 

A local ethic seems to have developed accepting the use of fixed or left draws for projecting on the steep wall at 82 as they are out of sight of everyone but climbers so please leave them if they aren't yours and remember to eventually come back for them if they are.

Be vigilant with inspecting fixed draws on this cliff. Some of them have been hanging for multiple seasons and are in the sun all day anytime there is sun to be had.

This route is a true classic and is a must-do for any visiting climber capable of the grade. Begin with a long, pumpy, sequential 5.11+ face climbing section to a sloping rail where there is an awkward no-hands rest using your shoulder blade and smeared feet, use it well. Once you get uncomfortable in the no-hands "rest", best to move on to the crux which is a long V5 boulder problem through a bulge. There is a challenging clip right at the crux section. The final move involves a dyno off a smal...[more]   Browse More Classics in Vermont
