Description 

Enter the crux after clipping a few bolts. There is an overall sustained nature to the route, however, it becomes gradually easier and more rewarding the higher you climb.

The limestone on this wall is sharp and high-quality.

Location 

Find the belay alcove 20 yards left of Afterlife. This is the belay spot for Orion (left route up the face) and Petrified (5.10c route on the route going up the dihedral).

Fore me this is the harder of the two routes out of the shady alcove. Good climbing but would be better route if it went straight up instead of traversing left after bolt 5!

There is now a third route in the alcove, left of the older two. It finishes on Orion and I guess could be called Orion Direct. It is easier than Orion ~10a.
