Description 

Traverse the Orca boulder left to right, using only the obvious ledge, not the pedestal boulder underneath. Heel hook city!
The crux is switching the heel hook about three quarters of the way through.
Super fun route that can be worked without much need of spotters if pad placement is right.

Location 

Orca boulder, to the right of the Sharpsicle. Follow the ledge to jug and then pebble top-out.

Protection 

boulder pad-- one and a spotter or two.
