Description 

Striking orange face climbing. Large holds and big moves down low lead to crux layback moves slightly above halfway. Slabs out slighly at the top and keep your attention all the way to the chains.

Location 

On the Right of the two cliffs descend via the rappell gully. Walk down the gully past three other sport climbs and around to the left. The Orange face is very obvious.

Protection 

Bolts to chain anchors.

The iron stained granite at the base of this route has been almost entirely stripped of its silica content due to weathering and has become more similar in nature to a loose conglomerate stone than actual granite. While this causes it to be heavily featured and super fun to climb, it also causes the rock to fracture off more easily so tread lightly for the first couple of bolts.
