BETA PHOTO: Naked Truth

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 

The route features clean climbing up a solid, slightly-off vertical face.

Location 

Starts at the same place as Fipi Lele.

Start at the base of the path to the top of the cliff. Walk upstream on the path that runs along the base. Come to a large boulder on your right with several decently sized ones around it. Walk around the corner to your left. On the left and right are jutting corners, dead center is the start, under the bolt.

Protection 

Thin cracks from top to bottom and a bolt dead center for traditional climbing. A large, sturdy tree and no shrubs at the edge for toproping.

After closely examining the hollow ground, surrounding vegetation (or lack thereof), and climb topout I took the initiative this week to install bolts at the top of this climb. It doesn't change the character of the climb and without them there is really no way to climb it without leading it and walking 25 feet through the woods to belay the follower.

The bolts are high-quality stainless steel ClimbTech Legacy bolts. They are beefy and strong but also specifically designed to be 100% removable. If anyone takes issue with these bolts let me know and I will remove them and fill the holes with epoxy. You'll never know they were there.

Chains coming soon.
