A clean and enjoyable gear route.
Mantle past the lone bolt and climb the generous, mostly hand-sized cracks in the corner. No jackpot moves. Easy to protect.


The obvious corner/gulley 15 feet or so left of O.R.G.asm.


Sizes in the green to blue camalot range suffice.

Despite the name, a great way to de-pump from the other ORG routes.

A #4 would not go unused.
