Access this descent route by scrambling up north from the Notchtop Spire area to the true summit of Notchtop. It looks improbable, but keep following the worn path. Some cairns were in place July 2014.

Total distance is about 4 rope lengths to the west gully. Some of the moves are 4th Class X, consider a rope for novice climbers.

I recommend resisting the temptation to rappel unless you can locate exactly where you are and have a good anchor.

Descent route on northwest side of Notchtop. Can be exposed and scary. Avoid the temptation to rappel.
