The Claw is an old route that climbs a prominent crack and chimney system on the south face of The Claw formation. the first pitch of the route follows mostly a low angle hand and finger crack to the base of the large right facing corner. Pitch two makes a move right into slightly friable rock before finding yourself at the base of a 15 foot off width that is the crux. follow this to the top and scramble to the top of the formation. The summit of Grouse Mountain is another 15 minutes of cross-country.
