Starting on the shallow left facing corner just above Castor, climb Orion’s Belt, but instead of heading to the crack left of the third bolt, continue straight up into a thin incipient crack. Jam fingers and smear feet to make a powerful long move to a crimp, quickly find a crystal to put your foot on to make another crimpy sequence followed by a powerful move up and right to a jug, then continue through easy terrain to the anchors.
The crux protects well, but it is a bit runout to the first bolt. You can get a .4 BD cam right below the finger lock, there is also a micro stopper placement after the crimpy sequence but it is hard to place when you’re pumped and it’s easier to just keep moving. The crux moves are a bit reachy and maybe height dependent.
- The climb with three bolts located at the left side of the sloping ramp just above the first pitch of Castor and left of Bogtrotter. Finishes on the Alcoa Ledge.
