Description

Pitch 1: 5.9
Follow the bolts and pull the cool roof, and then ramble to the anchor.

Pitch 2: 5.8
Continue up the slab until you reach another anchor.

Pitch 3: 5.5
Head up a shorter pitch to gain the "shelf". Shift the belay over to the start of pitch 4, which is to the left and heads up an obvious blunt arĂȘte and face to the right of a chimney.

Pitch 4: 5.10b
Head up on thin moves to a chain anchor.

Pitch 5: 5.5
Ramble up the final, short pitch. From the anchor atop this pitch, you can scramble slightly higher to the "top-out" of the formation if you wish.

Descent
Simply rappel the route. Be cautious as the rappels are long for several pitches.

Location

From the parking lot, make a short hike along the highway toward Tum Tum and follow the obvious path to the main wall. The route starts with a bolt right next to a sweet left-leaning hand crack and pulls a roof.

Protection

Minimum 12 quickdraws and a 60m rope.

A 70 meter rope is not required for this climb. There are several intermediate rap stations in place so a 60 is all that's needed. As always tie knots in the end of your rope Jun 24, 2016

The first pitch if off limits for access until further notice at the landowners request. You can still climb the upper buttress via access from the parking lot and the climbers trail. There are several excellent routes on the ledge just left of the 4th 10b pitch start for Orion. Makes it worth the hike up to climb these routes. Jun 16, 2016
