DescriptionUpper Upper West Bolton Cliff is the largest cliff on Bolton Notch road, past Upper West and at the very top of the notch. The cliff is about .25 miles wide and up to 300' tall. The dominant angle of the face is around 70-80 degrees with the occasional overlap to spice things up. Routes are 1-3 pitches in length and from 5.7 - 5.12 in difficulty with most of the pitches falling in the 5.7 to 5.9 range. Some of the routes can be a bit on the chossy side so watch out especially on fragile edge features. Some of the best moderate pitches in Bolton are found at this cliff.
NOTE : This area is generally closed from April to August for peregrine nesting. Please abide by the signs and stay away from posted areas. CRAG-VT has established a good working relationship between climbers and the peregrine biologists, so let's please not jeopardize access.
Getting ThereLeave route 2 and head up Bolton Notch road for about 5 miles passing both lower west bolton cliff on the right and Upper West Bolton cliff on the left until you see the cliff on the left. You can't miss it. Park at the Preston ponds trailhead (up to 4 cars may comfortably park here). Take the Preston Ponds trail right between the beaver ponds and head up hill for a short distance until a side trail becomes visible on the right which will take you to the main wall of Double Upper.
