Description:

Excercise in route finding. If you want to do the off-fists, lichen covered, crack at the top you'll need #5 or #6 C4s - for about 20ft. The arrete seems to be the most frequently traveled finish. Also mostly un-protectable. Either way the G rating in the guide book is misleading.

Descent Options:

Rap from Old Town ledge.

4 out of 5 stars Grundle

I finished via the arete, not the offwidth. I liked it. I think the crack might be harder than 5.6...

3 out of 5 stars Um, where does this thing go?

May have been off route, but the upper half of the climb didn't seem G to me. The arrete is easier climbing than it looks from below, however.
