Description

Slightly overhanging to orifice steep (almost) at the end. Mostly big holds make it a good warm up for the rest of the wall.

Location

Far left end of the ledge it starts up a right angling fin in dark gray rock to a short crack.

Way to go Marcy!!

This climb adds another alternative for warming up at the Orifice. It is pumpy so remember to take rests if using it a warmup.

Overall this climb is very interesting. Three cruxes, including a crimp section that is pretty unusual for this wall. Thanks Eric! Jul 31, 2011

Thanks for another fun route, EFR and co.! Jenny and I did a little unintentional cleaning on it today...we took off a couple holds between the 1st and 3rd bolts - nothing critical though. Jul 28, 2011
