Description Suggest change

This wild ride maybe is a tad better than Red Gorilla just to the right; although it has some lower-quality rock down low, the choss is more than offset by its outrageously exposed gymnastic climbing. Scramble up easy rock (same start as for Red Gorilla), then diagonal left and up past four bolts to the arête. Continue on easier ground past another bolt (shared with Creaking Plank) to the Red Gorilla chains. See the photodiagram on the Orbital Decay page.

For those who might have investigated Nimbus prior to June 2012, the line has been ”straightened out,” bolts added, and cleaned, again.
