    Rock Climbing Photo: The Rose Crack, Classic

    The Rose 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  Vermont : Bolton Area : ... : North End
    A fantastic hand crack. It meanders a little as it goes up the slightly tipped back rock face. The slight green tinge of the face from the moss lends a nice away from it all feel...sustained and a true Vermont Classic...[more]   Browse More Classics in Vermont
