History and Description of Rock Climbing at Deer Leap Killington VT

" Towering over the road below, Deep Leap has attracted climbers for over 65 years.  This cliff's first route was likely Arni Kirbach Carl Acker's ascent of Center Crack 5.7 in 1946.  For its time, the route was about as hard as anything that had been climbed in the northeast.  During the ascent, a crowd gathered at the inn below to watch the spectacle.  Spectators were given quite a show as Kirbach reportedly took a ten-footer onto a piton then, after gathering his wits, continued on to the trees with cheers and car horns tooting from below."  Today, Deer Leap continues to entertain with an excellent variety of trad and top-rope climbs on high-quality green schist."- Guide Book Rock Climbing in Northern Vermont -Travis Peckham
