Agent Orange completes a triumvariate of routes in the Farts sector that all get my vote as excellent climbs. Left of Farts is a small dihedral with a clean line just three feet left of the arete, this is Agent Orange. Begin off the trail, and not from the block used for Farts, by scrambling up to the first clip on a bit of chossy rock (we usually stick clip this bolt). Climbing above the first clip is excellent and bulltet-proof. Perhaps it is just my finger strength falling apart, but I have usually found Agent Orange to be more difficult than Farts or No Tomorrow. Climbing is typical of the Shelf on shallow, sharp pockets with an occasional upside-down edge thrown in. In fact just such an edge hits you at close to 30 feet height. I thought that the crux developed through the bulgy section leading into this edge system and in pulling past the edges. After this, climbing is largely on the feet via those thin pockets typical of the Contest Wall. Agent Orange also gets my vote as being at least as good as Little Mecca. The line is inspiring to the eye.


Ten draws and a rope.
