DescriptionThe most popular and most accessible climbing area in Bolton Valley. This area is busy on weekends and apres work during the summer and fall.
Some great and very lead-able routes are located here. A-Minor, Tea in the Sahara, and Sticks and Stones are just a few examples of routes here that take great gear. If you plan to lead a route here during a busy time, make sure no one is setting up a TR above you--it's not pleasant to have a rope dropped on your head while above your gear.
Most routes can be top-roped easily with one 60 meter rope and a 50 foot length of static line except for a few routes on the center of the cliff. Anchors at the top of the cliff are plentiful using either bolts or large trees.
Visit this web address (http://forums.cragvt.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=219&d=1195658879) to obtain a rudementary topo that was featured in Climbing Magazine in the early '90's.
Getting ThereExit 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.
