Description

Beautiful orange colored buttress with numerous cracks and corners. Boi-oi-oing has become somewhat of an instant classic among crack aficionados. Gets good morning sun.

There is a smaller buttress below the actual Orange Pillar formation that hosts a number of excellent single pitch crack lines, including Tommy Boy. See the Beta Photo below for some new route activity.

Getting There

Walk past the First Cliff, Right Tower then make your way up and across an unstable scree slope to get there. About 200 yards west of the main area. South and East facing.
