Vermont Rock
« on: March 09, 2013, 08:23:07 PM »

Anyone spend the winter thumbing through Tough Schist making a tick list? If so whats on your list?

 I skied out to Marshfield Ledge yesterday. Spent a long time staring at the cliff. I have been there quite a few times. Its a really large cliff, still so much for me to discover. I highly recommend it if your looking for a new destination.
 Noticed in the book that fellow neclimbs member, frik, did a new two star route in 2007. Curving Crack. I plan on checking that one out this spring.

Yes, like many other cliffs there are restrictions each year. They do a great job with the signage so it will be obvious.

If we catch and eat enough of them they won't need to close the cliff anymore! :)

Really.... 2007?
That doesn't sound right .... also "new" seems odd.
You sure you have the correct frik?

You are correct about Marshfield being a very nice cliff - BITD we used to call it Groton.

I didn't think you had been climbing over there that recently either so when I read mo's post I checked the guidebook and it does say you and Elms, 2007... So it must be true! Nice job!

I certainly have been thumbing through tough schist the whole winter, and I am looking forward to getting back up to the Bolton area this season.  I dislocated my left elbow at Farley in September but still managed to climb a few routes at Upper West a few weeks later.  In particular, I had a great time on the route Normandy (no MP page), but after the last bolt my arm was in no shape to continue and I wasn't able to figure out how to get to the anchors so I down climbed the route.  Definitely looking forward to figuring out the slabby bulge at the top

Yes, Chris was on almost all the 1st ascents back in the early years. While the cliff wasn't completely unknown, it was to climbers. Chris spotted it while looking for something else. Andy was on a number of 1st ascents too...
Drinking? why yes now that you mention it.
