This route is 5.11 except for a very difficult bouldery crux. Needs some repeats to get a better idea of the grade. Sloping rail/crack leads to more typical Orifice big moves and Jugs. From the ledge some fun jug hauling leads to the anchors. An unlikely kneebar but bomber kneebar can be had if you have short legs. Long legged people might be able to get one but it will be tricky to get.


Right of Unattended Consequences the second bolt is on the left side of a rounded point of rock.


Bolts, steel draws

Thanks Jbak. Be interesting to see how long it takes to get downgraded. I really have no idea. Oct 5, 2017

Wait.... does the national anthem have to be playing for you to use the kneebar ? Oct 6, 2017
Joe Silver got the most coveted second ascent yesterday. With legs too long to "take a kneebar" he found it hard to clip the forth bolt in the roof and moved left to a jug finishing it completely differently. He didn't give a grade but said it was "hard". I would love to see what really hard looks like when Joe is on something as he made this look pretty easy. Oct 9, 2017
