  • Description 

    The small cluster of cliffs situated east of Bone Mountain's main wall. The largest and middle of these walls is schist, but is sadly broken by ledges and low angle rock. The small cliff to the south is not worthwhile. The small cliff on the left side of the cluster, however, appears to be granite and yielded a few good lines. Though short, (150ft. wide x 60 feet tall) it is surprisingly high quality and would make a good extension to a day at the Main Wall, if a trail to it existed. This is some of the most remote and obscure climbing in the area. Standard rack to #3 camalot, anchors to come.

    Getting There 

    From the left end of the Main Wall of Bone Mountain, bushpush northeast, aiming for the point of highest elevation.

    Climb the finger crack (contrived) or begin from the ledge. Gain the hanging corner, exiting with difficulty to a stance on the right. Step up on the horn and climb fun horizontals to a wide flake. At the top of flake, step right and scramble 20ft. to a suitably wide spruce tree and belay. No anchor, untie and let the rope fall to the ground (easy if your second ties into the middle of the rope). A short scramble climber's right brings you back to the base....[more]   Browse More Classics in Vermont
