  • Description 

    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.

    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.

    82 Crag's version of Venus on a Halfshell, only better. This is a long enduro crimp route. Lots similarly-hard moves throughout and very sustained. Crux is more of a pump crux than a boulder problem. The crimps just keep coming and coming and they get particularly thin between the last two bolts.
