Description

From the tree on the ledge scramble up to make the first clip. find a right hand fingerlock and bust left in to a series of horizontal edges and slots. The rock is amazingly solid but equally slippery unless you hit it just right. Precision footwork will pay off and keep it feeling 5.10. Fail to figure out the feet and you will be working much harder. This bit of technical face climbing leads to a classic slopey mantle and a scamper up easier rock to the anchor.

I personally LOVE this one. Give it a try and tell me what you think.

Location

Essentially a second pitch to Nicely Stacked (5.7 trad) but the way we have been doing it is to climb the long 5.8 (Lonesome Buffalo) and lower down toward climbers left on to the ledge. Out of Order parallels the upper half of Lonesome so you will easily find it. Anchor to a large tree and have your second follow Lonesome and lower down to meet you on the ledge.
Well worth the logistics.

Protection

5 bolts to ram horn (pig tail) anchors

Great rock and great movement. I wish it could have been longer, but it's well worth going up to do. It looked like you could do the first pitch of Nicely Stacked and this route in one pitch as long as you stay to the right of the trees when you gain the ledge. Oct 13, 2017

Sweet little hidden gem! Lee's description is spot on. I'm a sucker for climbing thin edges and loved the hand/foot rockover/mantle. The feel good finish had me wondering how such perfect rock exited to the anchors. Cool climb not to be missed. Apr 25, 2018

9 bolts and anchor (sling on the 4th bolt) if you start from the ground as one pitch using the newly bolted beginning of Stone Worms. Really nice rock, especially the polished basketball slopers Jun 4, 2018

The rounded slopey stuff is not easy. Tenuous at times. Aug 24, 2018
