Begin below the steep, narrow est face of the Practice Face marked with "Orvie" graffiti.

Straddle the left arete. A few bouldery moves get you to the large ledge. The rest is easy, but the huge hold near the top is super dirty. Somewhat contrived in that the difficulty depends partially on whether a nice layback right of the arete is used.


Look for the "Orvie" graffiti on the west end of the Practice Face.

Both Orvie routes start on a southern face, which is found around the left corner of The Practice Face.

Orvie Direct begins on the left side of this face. Just to the left of this climb is a gully that can be freeclimbed to set up topropes for the Orvie Face, the Practice Face, and the Neolithic Wall


TR off 2-bolt anchor with chains on top.

Trad, but poorly protected.

Nice sustained moves, but you might feel like you're in a gym if you're with people who know the problem. Although a short problem, it is still a lot of fun. Apr 14, 2010
