Climbers will encounter a continual crux after the 1st bolt. The feet are excellent but sloping handholds on vertical terrain is encountered before heading through the upper crux, just right of large, blank overhang. Heady, powerful long moves, on smaller edges get you to the chains. This is a stout lead and yields stellar climbing for the area.


This route is found among others on the next big crag 100 meters up hill from the Notch. A TR can be set up from 1 of 3 bolts on top of formation. Locate a flat roof, high on cliff as landmark. One can be belayed from the bolts in order to set up a top-rope on the upper face of the crag.


6 bolts; supplement with small to med pro. Anchors consisting of chains hangs on the face.
