The Old Forge area is a patchwork of private and public property. Please respect private property and posted signs, and avoid climbing or trespassing on private property unless you have permission from the landowner.


Up the corner on great lay backs to a large tree at the top.


Large red corner 200 feer right of the decent trail. Starts on a large ledge about 10 feet up.


Standard Rack up to a BD #3

I love this route but it might be the hardest "5.7" I've ever climbed. I've lead it and followed it more times than I can count and I've never found a way past the crux that doesn't feel like I'm pulling 5.9 moves. If you mis-order your hands you're looking at straight up 5.10 climbing.

Great route, but definitely a sandbag.
