This boulder holds some of Vermont's hardest problems, a couple of great mid-grade problems, and The Finn, one of the most beautiful high-ball aretes in New England. Once you lay your eyes on the Finn, you will understand the name of this boulder.

Getting There 

At the highest point in the notch is a curve in the road, where the road constricts to navigate around the Shark Fin boulder, which lies right against the eastern edge of the pavement. The B.F.B. lies right across the road from the Shark Fin.

Start low on the arrete under the bulge and climb the arrete into the jugs for the top out.

It left behind a good sized incut crimp rail use this and a pinch above to get to the jugs now. Likely V7-8 range now....[more]   Browse More Classics in Vermont
