Climbing



Midd Kids tend to go climbing at Bolton and in the Adirondacks. They are both about an hour or two away. Crag Vermont also has some good information. The best guide book for the Adirondacks, in my opinion, is "Adirondack Rock" by Jim Lawyer and Jeremy Haas. If you want to be a cool midd kid, that is the one to get. Plus, our very own Derek Doucet (head of MOP) is pictured in it!For more info, contact Zach Perzan.

If you are brand spankin' new to climbing, great! The best way to get started is by taking an MOP class (email ddoucet@middlebury.edu), taking a climbing PE class at the climbing wall, or go on an MMC climbing trip (check the calendar). Then, contact the people above and tell them you want to get out on the rock with them!
