Description Suggest change

Orgasm is in the Bedroom Amphitheater west of Rainy Wednesday Tower. Start at the inside corner below the sizeable roof. Climb up the corner on 5.6 terrain. Under the roof, move to the wall on the right (facing west) and smear your feet up as high as you can, then reach for a left hand undercling in a shoebox sized notch. Once past the roof continue up the face to the top.

The name, from Al Rubin:   It was so named due to the sound effects my friend Gerry made while struggling with the crux overhang on the TR FA -- in fact the actual name was Gerry's Orgasm, but we abbreviated it. The names of the routes added soon after on either side, seemed to follow naturally (assuming the guidebook would describe routes from right to left).

Protection Suggest change

Small to medium pro, some longer slings for the roof.
