Blue Room Smuggeler's Notch

Seasonal Raptor Closures for access issues: please review


THE classic route in Smuggs. (I'm surprised it hasn't made it in there before this.) It can be deceptively steep depending on how it forms. Usually has a cave in the middle. The left of the cave is usually steeper than the right. There is another pitch above but it isn't always in and most people do the first pitch only.


Can be seen on the right (east) side of the notch coming in from the Stowe side. Look for trail or break trail from some large boulders as the road steepens.


Usually slings and rap rings around tree at top.
