Hike into the Ore-Bed Brook Lean-to from anyone of several ways. Head up the trail towards Gothics, but at the first stream-bed turn left. Follow the stream until you reach the base of the North Face. Head up and to the left at the base, entering the woods a few hundred yards above. Head directly into the woods, and a short time later a small rock slide is reached. Climb this to reach the main slide.

Route Description
