Description 

The center of the cliff contains a few quality walls. Home to the popular Family Picnic and Father's Day and new climbs of Fuck Rumney, Breaking the Wishbone, Radius, and Ulna.

Getting There 


If taking the sugar shack approach:


When you get to the large clearing, locate a very odd looking and tall stump. It's about 10 feet high. Cut into the woods following an easy contour of land. After a few minutes, trend right until the trees thin out. Trend left looking for a huge highball boulder. Cut into the boulders here and if all goes well you should end under Golf Ball Sized Urethra and , just left of Family Picnic.

If taking the Timberline approach:

Follow yellow flagging across the stream and up through the woods staying near the boulders. Don't get drawn to the right away from the cliff where it's a little easier. Be on the lookout for a huge pointed highball boulder. Cut into the boulders here and if all goes well you should end under Golf Ball Sized Urethra and just left of Family Picnic.

On par with any of the multi-pitch routes at the 82. Long, steep and thoughtful characterize this fun romp up a nice exposed buttress. start on the left side of a 70/80 foot buttress/pillar of rock in the center of the Main Cliff. The route is unmistakeable, as bolts mark the way. Pitch one is tricky little number with some balance and faith required at the crux. Finish on a nice ledge with a 2-bolt anchor.The 2nd pitch climbs steep rock up past an insecure block (step around it gingerly!!)...[more]   Browse More Classics in Vermont
