Description

Orangahang is located 30 yards right of the 3rd class gully, and ascends an obvious break in the bulge. Juggy moves over the bulge lead to easier slab/crack climbing.

Protection

The bulge is bolted, and then trad gear towards the top. The anchors are shared with Many Happy Returns. For toproping, bring a long sling, as the anchor is set back from the face.

If you use some long slings down low you can move right and link up with the upper part of what I think is rick's route. Makes the pitch longer and is well protected. Sep 24, 2010

My experience has been that this route eats some beginners alive. The movement through the crux is awkward, strenuous and reachy--not the best route for building a beginner's confidence or for teaching first-timers good climbing technique. Mar 4, 2009

reasonably protected without the bolts if you're so inclined. Dec 20, 2007

Even though this route goes through a slight overhang, nice hand and foot holds make for a route that people of all experience levels can enjoy. Can set up a TR by heading up the gully to the left of the climb - bolts for TR. Oct 16, 2006
