Register for the ABS Bouldering Competition + More Fall Events at Petra Cliffs!

ABS Comp, Reel Rock and the busy Fall at Petra Cliffs!

Fall is a great time to experience the local cliffs of Vermont and experience a different perspective on the Foliage. Our Guides have been busy at Lower West, Upper West and Smugglers Notch taking in the great Fall colors. Give us a call today, before the snow flies, to set-up your private guide for the day! 

Are you looking to get away from Vermont and soak in some of the heat only the desert can provide? Petra Cliffs is now offering destination climbs throughout the U.S. with locations such as Indian Creek, Utah and Red Rocks, Nevada. Have another location in mind? Contact us about custom trips!
