Ladders and iron rungs help you take a heart-pounding climbing route up Champlain Mountain to deep blue views of the Atlantic coast. Why simply hike a mountain when you can climb it? With ladders, iron rungs, and slender rock ridges to help you hoist yourself up 1,000 hair-raising feet, this route is more like a jungle gym than a trail. Luckily you don’t need special gear to scale Champlain Mountain on the Precipice Trail, but a strong grip and nerves of steel won’t hurt.
