Go East, Old Man climbs the left of 3 routes on a black, bulging buttress, approximately 30 feet right of Blank Frank.

Begin from a small spur trail above the main, dark side trail, and step up into slightly steep climbing on thin pockets, edges, and sidepulls. Continue upwards past museum quality hardware on great rock. There are no show stopper cruxes, but a fair amount of thin technical finger and footwork will keep your attention.


There are 2 trail "tunnels" at the dark side. This is between the two of them (approximately 150 feet right of the big tunnel, which has Suspender Man on the overhanging wall).

There is a small trail that breaks back to the right to get up to this little buttress, which is also home to The Welcoming and Trolling For Holds.


Approximately 6 bolts and anchors, all of which are in pretty rough shape. The coldshut on the left anchor bolt looks particularly crappy, and the right bolt is not great looking either.
