Description:

Starts a 100 feet or so right of Beginners Delight. Climb a short but tricky left facing corner to a ledge. Head left to a right facing corner past a tree to a ledge. Pitch 2 heads up a corner to a chimney, and the up and left to the GT ledge. Pitch 3 head up easily bypassing an overhang on the right(climb the overhang directly at 5.5 if you wish) to the top. Great easy climbing with tricky route finding. The belay/rappel tree on the GT ledge at end of P2 is now (Oct 2010) dead/rotten

4 out of 5 stars Haven't been on this in years

If you can get through the first moves, the rest of the climb is easy peasy. Not sure how to get off the route. We went to the top and walked climbers left to the Beginners Delight tree. We rapped three times to get down, wasn't sure my 70's would hit the lower tree or not. This is a fun climb, very exposed but very easy climbing. Gear is plentiful.

4 out of 5 stars shaking the rust out

After a six weeks of toproping local crags due to weather and prior committments, it was nice to get out on a little trad. And on a Wednesday to boot!! Andrew and I decided to shake out the rust on something really mellow. Had never climbed Minty before and it has a couple starts, so up we went!

Andrew led P1, and I led the upper half in two pitches, belaying on the GT.

5 out of 5 stars Last climb in the Gunks...

This was fun... I followed Tadan up to Bags End then back around to do the 2nd pitch of Minty and then I lead the 3rd easy pitch. Ate BBQ Wraps at the top and rapped off Beginners Delight.

2 out of 5 stars One hard move

The beginning corner has one hard move; everything else is a run to the top. Linked 2nd and 3rd pitches.
