  • Description 

    An excellent place for a beginning trad leader! Decent exposure, south facing, excellent views, and good pro make up the majority of the climbing on the Solstice Slab. To top it off, it's the easiest section of Bone Mountain to find. A few hundred feet right of Family Picnic lies the obvious imposing slab which can be seen from the interstate miles below!

    The slab hosts Aro's Great Adventure on the left, Sad Peter and Stinkinabuttsa going more or less straight up the middle of the slab, and Lost in the Forest up the right end.

    USUALLY CLOSED IN SPRING FOR PEREGRINE FALCON NESTING

    Getting There 

    Hike right from Family Picnic until you reach a huge streaked slab. The mid anchors of Sad Peter. can be seen from the bottom.

    Another great easy climb on the Solstice Slab, the most direct line up the wall.P1. Start in the center of the slab, just right of Sad Peter. Head directly up the slab aiming for a bolt in the center of the headwall. Tackle the steep headwall on great holds and continue up to a nice belay ledge. 5.7. P2. Continue straight up the slab from the belay passing great horizontal cams. Don't be tempted to wander left, continue up to reach an excellent belay ledge with a two...[more]   Browse More Classics in Vermont
