Begin 10' left of The Founder's Forge. Bold initial moves gain the rounded rock above. Climb over/around/between/through bulges, overhangs, and grooves. Don't burn out before you hit the top! (Indy)
If I remember correctly, this route is awkward if you climb to the right of bolt (number 2 or 3, approx 20 feet up) at a bulge low on the route. If you climb left and then up it flows very nicely the entire way.


Right of the low cave.

There seems to be confusion about the names of the routes with Maryland guides wordpress site. This is called The Founder's Forge there and given a 5.9 though it felt quite stout. It was 5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.
