Description

Climb right side of off width by a tricky move up right that's not actually in the off width crack. After mounting ledge move further right to head back left to off width to do another tricky move to gain decent foot ledges. Above this is a small oak tree in the off width dirt now. Standing on the outside edges move up and clip tree. Go left onto knobby face and run it out to a bolt (5.4). At bolt moving left carefully on blocks is easiest way up here and awkward. Climb has gotten very lichen dirty now, move right up past bolt to small diagonal downward facing corner to move up to reach a 2 bolt belay. Climb filthy rock for 70ft with 2 protection anchors (5.2) to trees and rappel back to the bolt belay. Nice view and a very large, very dirty slab. There are fragrant ferns in this area that can be easily avoided.

Location

Downhill from 'Supreme Onion Sacrifice' is a 30ft wall. On the west side of this wall, it meets another wall at an off width crack corner after an uphill scramble passing an oak tree.

Protection

5 bolts and some medium hexes or friends and one large piece or just run it out on the three lowest bolts. Although I free soloed it the rope was available to utilize and so I'm calling it a pseudo free solo. I placed the bolts on a top rope. Walking down towards the Orange Crush Wall trail's start is doable. No carabiners on belay bolts.
