Rock Climbing might not be the first thing you think about when you think about the state of Vermont. However, throughout the Green mountains range, which rests firmly in the state, there are a number of excellent crags that are ideal for safe and fun climbing. And on this trip, which can last for one, or several days if you wish, we would like to take you to the best climbing spots.
We will consider different factors when selecting where to climb. Those factors include your skill level, personal preferences as well as weather conditions. There are several different routes to choose from in each location as well. That means this trip is open to less experienced climbers as well as expert climbers looking for that riveting challenge. However, regardless of your skill level, all participants should be in good physical condition.
The climbing options on this trip include Bolten, Smugglers Notch and Wheeler Mountain. All of the options offer unique single pitch, multi-pitch, sport, top rope and trad routes that range in level from 5.6 to 5.11. All of the options are also located near the city of Burlington. Thus providing you with an excellent outdoor activity to add to your visit to the lovely city.
Rock climbing in Vermont is a great way to spend a summer’s day. Filled with excellent climbing opportunities, we know you’ll have a great time on the Green mountains. To join us, just send a request. We look forward to hearing from you.

At Adventure Spirit we provide Rock, Ice and Alpine Experiences. We are based in the Northeast, USA (Winter), and Pacific Northwest, USA (Spring/Summer).
Our guide operations are led by Kel Rossiter. After stints in the military, the corporate world, and a Zen monastery, Kel began pursuing climbing as his professional passion. A Washington native, his first summit was an all-cotton ascent of Mt. Adams (12,281'). Fortunately, he went on to get appropriate training and since then he has climbed and guided rock and ice in twelve different countries on four continents. Now based in Vermont for most of the year, Kel owns and operates Adventure Spirit LLC, a rock, ice, and alpine guide service specializing in Northeastern climbing destinations.
Kel is also active in higher education, serving as a faculty member/instructor at several area colleges and holding a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership & Policy Studies. He has complemented his university studies with American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA) training, having become an IFMGA Mountain Guide.
Kel is an Ortovox Athlete/Guide Ambassador, and he also enjoys bringing the mountain experience to people through writing and has been published in Climbing Magazine, Alpinist, and The Seattle Times, among others. In between his stints in the mountains, Kel serves on the boards of CRAG-VT, Vermont’s climbing access organization and the Vermont Outdoor Guide Association. And though he left the Zen monastery long ago, he still does see the value found in just sitting still.

Dimitris is not only an awesome guide, but a wonderful person who was always looking out to give me the best experience I can have when he found out how much I love climbing! He is the Best!
I am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.
I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.
Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!
Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
