Comments: Really great climb. Fun, committing moves with good exposure. I really want to give it 4 stars but hesitate to because the base is a bit slopey and cramped.

Comments: Big pile o' choss. Like MH said above, the rock just crumbled underneath are feet and the bolting was not intelligently thought out. We were in WY on vacation and were sorry we wasted the time to go here. If you're in the area for a day and need somewhere to go, choose Stonehenge instead...higher quality rock and climbing

Comments: The bolt could possibly be an artifact left over from when Verplank Colvin surveyed the Adirondacks in the 1870's. I believe that Noonmark was a mostly forested summit until Colvin and his crew cleared it in order to facilitate conductting the survey (as is the case with several other Adirondack summits.

Comments: Thought I led the 2nd pitch but not sure if I was actually on it. Felt like 5.5 but was very dirty and didn't look like it gets climbed much. I did break through a small roof with a piton, there was 2 death blocks directly beneath which added challenge to the move due to making certain I didn't disturb them. Be careful there...I initially pulled on one and it moved...very scary. Finished in a left-facing corner with a piton.

Comments: Loved the first pitch. The second pitch had a scary run-out. Found myself in a difficult spot as I was wandering to find gear. Ended up about 15 feet above my last piece which was a white tricam! Definitely felt that I was in a 'cannot fall' situation. Not for the beginning 5.5 leader...don't be lured by the G-PG rating in the book.

Comments: Fun Route! Don't pass this one by as a just a dirty corner. Lapped it four times and climbed it a different way each time. Great route for practicing various techniques.

Comments: A little hard to toprope due to how the route wanders left and right up the wall. We remedied this be just going straight up over the bulge(5.5) near the top.
