Description

Brilliant route. Start on somewhat powerful pinches, then move into a thin, technical layer. Pull through the short choss layer and finish on fantastic steep blocks. Big moves on positive holds.

Location

25 yards right of Stingray, 25 yards left of Rock-in My Sports Bra.

Protection

8 bolts to sport anchors.

I agree with Jaren, best route at pointless. Super varied style and simply fun the whole way. I climb it every time I'm there. Thanks Dean!
I think the hardest moves are in the first half, the top can be a little heady. Apr 30, 2013

It may be no harder than .10d, but it is a step up in difficulty compared to the other .10d's in the region. Consider Hanging Humor, the classic .10d. Orbit is longer, more technical (in the middle), pumpier, and requires bigger moves (at the top). On that basis, I suggest .11a. Apr 17, 2013

Brilliant indeed. The first bolt can be a bit tricky/difficult to reach...as is the case at South Park, bring a stick clip. The 3rd clip can be tough so make sure your belayer is on it. Enjoy! Jul 19, 2012
