DescriptionThe crux is a mantle-type move 15 or so ft.above the last bolt (1/4"Stardrive)on the 2nd pitch. The climbing is sustained and run-out face and friction. Belays are drilled bolts (2 Stardrives apiece).
LocationOld Ironsides Slab. The route climbs the left side of an arch in the middle of the slab and to the left of a large, triangular flake. 2 ropes required for rappel down to a gully on the right of the routes.a 5.8ish route continues up dihedrals to the summit of O.I.but that means you have to walk all the way around and back out to collect your packs.
