Description

A small crack system cliff right of Orange Corner has a fun first section that protects well and leads to a ledge. From this ledge the protection is harder to decipher and trust if you stay on the direct path going up. A couple move past the ledge leads to better protection but the rock quality is still not the most inspiring.

Otherwise from the ledge, walk cliff left and merge on to Orange Corner for a less stressful variation/linkup.

There is a big chicken head once you top out that you can sling and made for a great anchor to top rope both Orange Corner and Whale Of A Tale.
