Black Mountain North is a small area to the left of a large rock fall visible form the road under the power line. You will drive past Black Mountain North on your way to the main cliff.

Getting There 

Travel VT Rt 114 north and go approximately 3 miles past the town of Norton. Turn right on Gaudette Rd and proceed down the access Rd for the powerline. Washouts are possible along this stretch of road so make sure you have some ground clearance. A large rock fall will become visible as you drive towards the main cliff and a small pull out allows you to park here. The pull out is located after a culvert, on the east side of the road and 5.2 miles from RT 114. Flagging will mark a trail to the left side of the rock fall.
