    A buddy and I did a couple routes at this area in the northeast a few years back after a longish approach and I'm curious if anyone else had done them prior to our climbs. They're classic single-pitch routes but pretty sure they've been done as they aren't that hard and we found a couple rock routes while there earlier in the year. Do you recognize it?

    Alden is this flow on Black mountain about 6 miles down the power lines? There are some really nice rock climbs there. There was another cliff that we didn’t get to ,closer to the ponds it has a talus field at the base.

    Paul Hansen and I climbed some rock there in the late 90s. Ed Webster is rumored to have climbed there too, thoughI have no idea if that’s true.

    Scouted it a few years back, found a nice dagger in a tight right facing corner, didn’t climb anything though.
    Always thought thered be good rock routes as well. The rock is out or character for VT it seems, lots of corners from what I remember. Brousseau Mt I believe,
    Spelling I’m sure is wrong;) I was just thinking about that area and saw your pic.

    Thanks Bill. The rock on Black mountain was corners and cracks for the most part. Need to get back there in the spring.
