This route would be much more popular if the start was more obvious. Don't be deterred, the upper portion is sweet!! Start by climbing the low angle featured face trending up and right to gain a ledge about 20 Ft. below an overhang. Climb up the face passing 2 bolts to reach the overhang(crux). Pass the overhang on the left side and continue to the top. The moves at the crux are a bit reachy but the holds are really good.


This route is not on the Orchard wall proper but just right of the start to Ritz Cracker. Can be found in the Orchard Buttress section of the guidebook.


Mostly small gear, especially for the opening slabby moves. 2 bolts.

I think the route description is a little misleading. The first bolt on this route is about 15 feet off the deck and can be clipped from a small ledge with a thorn bush growing on it. Moving around this bush detracted from the route quality substantially and I felt that the crux was moving past the first bolt, but part of that was due to everything being covered in lichen. That said, the top portion of the route is fantastic, and the two cruxes are bolt protected. Jan 24, 2018
