Description

An excellent and forgiving, gear eating monster, this route is the perfect climb for the new trad leader (you also have to be psyched to haul your rack to Notch Lake). Remote as the Gunks are to Utah, this climb is the closest you'll get to being at The Trapps. Horizontal breaks, big solid edges, and nice resting steps get the choosy, gear and sling picker, peacefully to the top.

Starting steep, this route follows a stacked ledge system through and over nice rests to a big ledge at a two bolt anchor. Follow the obvious crack and breaks.

Led ground up with gear, this traditional route ironically became two climbers first and successful attempts at hand drilling anchor bolts.

Location

Bolt School sits heavy on the right side wall of Notch Lake. This route climbs the obvious steps between Prisoner of My Own Subsconscious and Size Matters Not.

Protection

A single, double, or triple rack of whatever! You name it, it'll take it! (except your #5 or #6 bd- sorry near obsolete, dust collecting, desert cams). A two bolt anchor serves as the finish and allows a comfy descent.

Fun route, well worth doing if you've lugged your single set of cams all the way up there! The anchors bolts (no chains) are set back and hard to see from ground. Aug 19, 2016
