Ask us for our favorite sport climbing spots in the East, and we'll point you to the White Mountains of New Hampshire, or to the Gunks in New York. That said, this video from Outdoor Gear Exchange drew our attention to Vermont, where local climbers like Travis Peckham and Seth Maciejowski are taking on the risk of setting new routes and pushing the state's vertical limit. After watching this, you'll want to keep an eye on the cliffs at Smuggler's Notch, too.
