Yet another pearl of the Orifice Wall, crazy steep, beta intensive and ridiculously fun.
Three distinct hard sections lead to the anchors. The climbing is sustained, so it is key to learn how to use and milk the few rests. The ride is not over until is over. During rainy season, water seeping from the chimney at the top of A Hard Day in the Orifice wets some key holds in the middle section, making the red point quite elusive. Location
In the middle of the Orifice Wall. Rigth from A Hard Day and left of Politics.

Good job. That climb look's like one hell of a route everytime I have to hang dog on Orfice politics. Way to put all of it together.

Thanks you all. I am so relieved, I was beginning to think Nippeit the troll was going to have to come show me how to get up the thing...

For those of you who missed Jesse's most impressive send.
I am sorry for the poor camera work, but not all all for the musical selection. VIDEO

.Love the music choice but I would love to hear the grunts, groans, thankyou jesus, that is standard when Jesse is giving it everything he has. I heard it was a real battle.

Well maybe next time I will put a mic on his collar - Unfortunately he was too far away for my crappy camera to pick up except for the little epic when his feet cut loose.
