Here's a topo showing the entire rap route from the summit of Notchtop. Jul 21, 2008

Couple of notes about this rap topo:

From the summit rap, you can get to the first bolted rap with double ropes. From the 3 pins rap you can get to the first bolted rap with a single 60m.

From the first bolted rap, it's about 150' to the next station (slightly rapper's right on the big ledge).

From the second rap, it was maybe 120' to the next station (also on a big ledge and slightly rapper's right).

From there, you'll get to the ground easily with another double rope rap. Jun 4, 2012
The bolts are not that easy to locate. The raps are slightly climber's right (not too much but fight the pull into the gully!). I say this as it appears folks rap into the gully or farther right and get stranded/have to leave gear...there are old rap anchors everywhere. The second bolted rap ends well past the height of the gully/chockstone rap (on the topo it appears higher). It's not a bad idea to rap without stopper knots, and be careful not to rap off the ends (or use them and use "saddle bags" for the ropes) as there is a lot to get the rope caught on. Lastly, the first person may want to rap with the rack or at least a way to ascend the rope as it possible to miss the bolts/rap past! Aug 8, 2012
