Toby - thanks for your support bud, much appreciated.

I'm gutted to heat that our party were littering the crag - it's my pet hate. I had no idea that thay were even eating there - too busy climbing I guess.

Much apologies to all the climbers up at Bolton and thanks for letting us enjoy your great grag - for what it's worth I'll give my party a good bollocking when I next see them.

Ashamed
Matt

So anyone thats been to Bolton in Vermont might be able to tell me - whats the route just to the right of the path, round the corner (climbers right) of Dead Babies. Single pitch (easy anchors), climbs a gentle right facing dihedral with a ballroom sized ledge about 10 feet from the top. The crux is above the ledge - laybacks and smearing with a big flake to the right




The one right around the corner from Dead Babies is Wavey Goodbye and is a 5.7. I don't think it has the ledge on top that you described. There is another corner with another dihedral that is A-Sharp and is 5.6 and a hard 5.6 at that. You can tell which one it is because A-sharp is on the "A" Wall where two diagonal cracks meet to form a giant "A". As you can tell, Bolton is a pretty tough place to start leading, there isn't much easy to lead.

I have a 10 year old topo from Climbing. PM me with an email and I will shoot you a pdf copy.

Yeah, and the rock quality is marginal at best. There are some great lines at Upper Bolton, which start at a solid 5.7.
