Description

This is an excellent moderate route on the Orange Wall. Great for beginner multi pitch instruction.There are 3 pitches all within the 5.7 range and the belay ledges are very spacious. The approach is very easy from the Orange Wall camping area.
Follow a very apparent crack on the western end of the wall.

The first pitch has great moves mainly in the crack. At the belay ledge veer right several feet to a two crack system that is the start of the second pitch.

The Second pitch is best started in the left of the two cracks. When this crack ends traverse right across the small face to the right crack. This is fun. Follow the crack to another grassy ledge.

The Third Pitch is similar to the others with fun face/crack moves to a final ledge. From here walk off to the west.

Location

The route is in an apparent crack system on the West end of the Orange Wall. It ends at the platform that is the common walk off for several routes.

Protection

One and a half rack would be great with a set of nuts.
There are no bolts, fixed gear, or anchors.
