Description

Route goes straight up wall between Orange Corner and Whale of a Tale. Look for super clean slab 20 ft up. Face climb from start of O.C. and work right to below the clean slab. Plug gear in vertical crack, make long reach from crimps to small flake and continue up to 2" crack. Route finishes on O.C.

Location

Start at base of O.C. but immediately work up and right for 20' until directly below clean slab.

Protection

Light rack ranging from small stoppers to 3"

Hasn't this been climbed on top rope for years and years? I know that whole wall used to get a lot of top rope action back 15 years ago...haven't been there in a while, but I distinctly remember climbing what I think was this route back in the day, along with many other climbers. Dec 15, 2014
