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 up and traverse right past 2 bolts (crux, backclean 1st bolt to avoid rope drag). Climb the face past a 3" horizontal cam placement and a few bolts, trending left. Follow the horizontal crack left to the arete (gear) and finish on easier terrain.


The line to the left of LM, Black bolts I believe. There is a chair shaped tree at the base.


Bolts, 3"cam, .5" cam

This is an especially good route, one that I do every time I visit. The crux is moving right under the roof at the second bolt. The traverse left takes a #0.5 Camalot and is the second crux. Once on the arete, it doesn't ease up for a few move moves.

The fixed anchor is on the right side of the arete. The anchor to the left is for Stihl Water.

You can avoid the crux by starting as for LM, the large left-facing flake to the right. Climbed this way the grade is reduced to 5.10b or so.

Don't bypass the crux on this one! It's one quick move with a huge bolt over your head!!!
