Description

The original of Orangutan continues to see little traffic.

P1: 45 feet, 5.3 R
P2: 30 feet, 5.8 PG

Starts in a 9' corner, 25 feet right of the Long Chimney on Open Face. Go up three ledges using easy rock, keeping right towards the end to belay. Pitch 2 keeps right and goes through the so-called "Crack of Doom."

Location

Up the middle of Orangutan Buttress, between Open Face and the Great Zawn.

Protection

Standard rack. Runout start. A pair of belay/rappel chains is on the ledge at the top of the first pitch. Haven't confirmed what's on top of the cliff for an anchor these days.
