About Upper North Face:

The stunning north face of Notch Peak commands attention and tickles the imagination. But it is only after a 2+ hour approach to the base of the routes that the size and complexity of the peak can be appreciated. It can be downright intimidating. The rattle of occasional stones down the sunless face makes this northwall feel more like something out of the Italian Dolomites, Bernese Oberland, or Canadian Rockies than the middle of nowhere in the heart of the West desert. For those prepared, the routes here offer high adventure in a remote location. James Garrett's "Ibex" guide offers the best information to the approach and climbing on Notch Peak. IME in Salt Lake City has topos and information on the recent routes.
