P1: 10b. Follow a crack/flake. The pitch has one bolt.
P2: 10c. Go straight up the east face of Orc Tower. This pitch is all gear. The photo shows the position.
Unlike other routes that go directly onto Orc Tower, this is reported to have no loose rock.
Can be reached from the top of either Leave my Face Alone (11a) or Kite Flying Blind (11c) or by walking in. Also see overview on main page.
A rack of tiny gear to 4".

The first pitch is quite dirty (8/23/13), it would be fun climbing if it were clean though.
The second pitch requires a lot of thin gear (e.g. #0 and #00 C3s, micronuts). It finishes with a very burly offwidth, so don't forget to bring a #4!
There is a lot of loose rock at the base of the tower, consider only climbing this route on weekdays to reduce the risk of hitting climbers below with falling rock.
