Yet another beautiful arete, Promiscuous Girl.

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.


Climb the arete past 4 bolts (crux). Gain a stance and then climb easier rock past bolts to the anchor. Beautiful stone!

Previously 12a although a few critical holds broke bumping the grade up to 12b.


The arete just to the right of Lichen or Not.


9 bolts

The second hold on the route broke off. This large crucial jug hold looked substantial but was actually only attached by a couple square inches of rock. The broken hold is still mostly in one piece and was placed in the offwidth crack just to the right of the start of the climb. The route may still go but it will certainly be harder in its current condition.

Oof! That's right through one of the cruxes. Could bump the grade for sure...

Yea I think my buddy broke that hold off while I was belaying him. It still went at 12a he thought iirc. He didn't even crank on it hard. Just eagle falls rock being brittle like usual I think.

John, I broke off a different one. It was farther down and to the right, not even on the route. This breakage will certainly change things.

Matt, yes, the route has been led since the loss of the two aforementioned holds. Goes at 12b, in my opinion...just a little harder than the original.
