Description

This is the mixed route just to the right of Hot Zone. Start up the funky crack where stoppers are ideal until face holds hit. Clip a few bolts with some delicate face climbing 'til the bolts are in your face. Diverse route. Enjoy.

Named in honor of the Orval Abbey, which was founded by Benedictine Monks from Calabria (southern Italy) in 1070. Today, this Trappist monastery continues its 900 year brewing tradition by producing one of the world's finest monastic style ales. Aug 3, 2009

Excellent climb. First half is an interesting 5.8 crack climb, and the second half is a great 5.10 face. Can be top-roped from the Hot Zone anchors with some swing potential management. Sep 5, 2006
