  • Description 

    The Satellite Wall is more developed than the main wall and it is very small compared to it's bigger brother. The base area and clifftop are more manageable, thus descending routes/setting up TRs is possible without breaking too much of a sweat. A few of the classic routes are Dawson's Corner (5.7) and Gemini Dream (5.8).

    Many of the routes follow obvious crack systems and corners though there are a few face routes, and one spectacular unfinished project (has been TR'd, but awaits a redpoint ascent) called "Chainsaw Reaction" that tackles a razor-sharp overhanging arête. Care must be taken on the summit of this cliff to avoid additional erosion. Routes are described left to right.

    A great line with a traditional grade. The route looks obvious from the ground, but the sequence may prove troublesome for many.Gain the ultra thin crack protected by a solid pin, then move delicately up the fissure until it just about runs out, clip the high bolt, and make some difficult boulder moves to easier climbing above. Similar to "Vultures" at Sundown Ledge in New Hampshire. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Vermont
