Despite the heckling it receives from the locals, many a good day can be spent climbing in the quarry. Known more for it's great ice climbing, there are plenty of worthwhile sport routes here as well. Check out Tough Schist to help fill in the gaps here as there is a bit more than what you see here.

"The Schoolhouse" refers to the ledge up on the left-hand side and contains the routes from Wandering the Halls to Anything for an A.

The "Main Quarry" is anything to the right of Anything for an A and contains generally long and continuous climbing on quarried rock.

Getting There 

Either hike through the Dwarf Wall trail and continue to reach The Schoolhouse or continue hiking past the trail to the Dwarf Wall and trend left into the Main Quarry once you are above the lower quarry.

Just to the right of Playground Bully and a few feet to the left of I Thought You Had It. Make a bouldery move off the deck to gain good incut holds. Finish up with a tricky little traverse move to the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in Vermont
