Jesse Shultz flashing Gettin off the Porch 12-.
Closed to climbing, March 15-June 30 MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Cool moves off the ground then left onto some slightly funky vertical rock. Up to really cool moves past bulge to powerful laybacks. I think once the 15 feet of funky rock cleans up a little more this will be a blast.


Location 

On the Orifice Wall it starts in the grey rock at the inverted V slot where you start to drop down to reach the route Hard Day At The Orifice. For those of you who are familiar with the place it is just left of the abandoned route with the 15 year old red tag on it.

I heard through the grapevine that Jared (the newlywed) sent Gettin off the Porch recently. Way to go Jared! That's a great end to the summer of work at the orifice!
