Shares the start with Dino-soar and splits left following a yellow band of rock out the steepness.

Starts just right of the small ledge at the top of the slab with the 2 glue-in belay anchors. Make your way through a short bouldery sequence moving out right and over a bulge followed by a good rest before entering the business.

Climb a good flake to thin moves to an ok rest. Go past a few bouldery moves to a 2 finger slot and try to mantle the lip to a sloppey move up top. Rest in the alcove. Don't puke. Keep it together and move left to the anchors.


Below Orangahang, right of Tin Man, left of Dyno-soar
