Smugglers’ Notch Multi-Pitch Rock Climbs

Looking to take your skill to the next level and into some multi-pitch terrain? Consider climbing in one of Vermont's most scenic State Parks, Smugglers' Notch! Smuggs is full of rock climbs and lacks the crowds you bump into at more popular crags. You will spend the day learning the language of easy transitions and fast and efficient techniques for multi-pitch climbing. Come get a couple hundred feet off the deck with us and enjoy some of the stellar classic routes of the Notch! 

  • Classics include the 4-pitch Quartz Crack (5.9), the 5-pitch Diagonal (5.9+), the 2-pitch Big Daddy Arete (5.10a) and the 3-pitch sport mixed route Better Living Through Chemistry (5.9+)

We'll climb at a relaxed pace with plenty of time for tailored instruction. You will learn the benefits of when to use a Half, Twin or Single rope system and how to safely manage multi-pitch rappels.
