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.

Description 

A short but enjoyable climb with some fun moves and heartbreaking final moves if you fail to keep your head on your shoulders. Currently a little dirty but such an accessible route should clean up nicely.

Start the same as for Ranger Rick but continue straight up the crack system to a two-bolt anchor.

Grumpy Rick Variation: It's also possible to traverse right just before the top and end on Ranger Rick. If you get pumped out and need an escape route it would save you the 5.9 crux and give you a 5.8 climb.

Location 

Same start as Ranger Rick but go left up the obvious crack system to a two bolt anchor. The furthest possible climb to the left at the end of the cliff.

Protection 

One bolt, small gear. Nothing bigger than a .75.
