Description

This route climbs through the first major set of overhanging stalactites if you are coming from the west/left of the crag. The original version went to the right of the cave on tufa-like vines on the rock (pictured), then up to the slab, and then through the stalactites. There's another version ("Gothic Direct") that takes you through the sharp rock on the left side of the cave. Do a sit-start for more fun! The crux is probably the start, although if you don't take enough rests you might tire out in the severely overhanging final 1/5th of the climb.

Protection

Top rope for now with anchors set at the top using the tree with the "1" etched into it (as of 2015).
