The most popular and most accessible climbing area in Bolton Valley. This area is busy on weekends and apres work during the summer and fall.
Exit 11 (Richmond Exit) off of Interstate 89. Head east on Route 2 for roughly 6 miles into Bolton. Make a left onto Notch Road, which is located along the long, flat section of Route 2. Head up the road for roughly a 1/4 mile until you see an obvious small parking lot on the right. There is enough room in this lot to fit 3 cars, but spots are also available along the right hand side of the road.

Follow the obvious right leaning crack up the short face making use of the sharp pockets and other features to the right. Interesting rock with great holds seemingly molded to the human hand at times.This is a really fun climb, just wished it was longer. Could be a high ball (I would suspect it going at around V1/2 if you stuck to the crack), but the landing is a slab that goes for about 15 feet down hill, would be sketchy....[more] Browse More Classics in VT
