Climbers on OrangOtang.


A bouldery entry move leads to a stance in a large pocket and the base of a broad shallow orange water course. Climb the orange water groove on numerous pockets and knobs to the summit.


South face of the Tower of Babel. OrangOtang begins on the right wall, at the top of the broad gulley between the Temple of Ishtar and the Tower of Babel.


4 bolts & an anchor with chains.

Fun climb. Committing start to a fairly high first bolt after the hardest moves. Drops to maybe 5.5 after that. Last bolt to the anchor is runout but probably 5.2 climbing so not a big deal.
