To date the easiest route at the Orifice Wall. The climbing is tricky and and has some crimps down low. The middle section is pumpy with a moderate last 15 feet. It might make a good warm up climb on a cloudy day or if you get there after 11 a.m.


Starts from the ledge that you traverse in on and is just right of Huck Finn.

it's really surprising to me that climbers still occasionally remove anchor biners. i'm not sure if the cause is ignorance or self-centeredness, but in either case it's really annoying.

i suggest spray painting the carabiners the same color as the quick links and bolts. in addition to camouflaging the carabiners, doing this helps make it more clear they are intended to remain as part of the anchor. it also makes them less appealing to steal for personal use. Aug 6, 2010

The anchor biners were stolen from this route. We had to add new ones a couple of weeks ago. Clearly the person who did it downclimbed or topped out, either way seems a lot of work to booty two old biners... what is up with that?
This is an annoyance for climbers since the anchors have no chains. Please respect the climbing area and honor the fixed gear, it is left there for your own convenience. Aug 5, 2010

Jon - After the route was equipped by others, I climbed it first. The day I climbed the route was the week of the 7th anniversary of the passing of my younger brother. The name is a small tribute to him. Jul 30, 2009
