DescriptionSecond pitch terrain of Orange Crush, specifically above the upper anchor ledge of Black Mamba. It is easy to approach independently from the rest of Orange Crush so I figured it should get a separate area. You could do these routes as second pitches after doing Black Mamba but I don't think many will do it that way.
Climbs from 50-80ft in length on interesting rock with some of the best views and exposure you can get at Rumney for the moderate grades.
-The Climbs start a few steps away from about a 100ft drop. Take care and use anchors where prudent.
-This is not a crag for dogs or kids, a bad step could be their last.
-The area directly below this is very popular. Take great care to avoid dropping anything on climbers and/or by standers below.
-Tread as lightly as possible at the base of these climbs. Erosion will rain debris down on people below.
Getting ThereHike up the trail as if you are going to Pulse wall and just as you get to pulse there is a path leading to the left and out to the edge of Orange Crush. You will know you have arrived when you see the rope I have run between some trees to help people stay in the safe zone. There is a loop close to the edge of the cliff for anchoring.
