Long and sustained route and my favorite at Maple Canyon for moderates! Don't miss this route but tie knots in end of 60m rope because it will use every inch of it!! Great Route


In the middle of Orangutan Wall and about 20 feet left of Full Moon Monkey.


10 Bolts will get you to the fixed anchors for your rapple; careful!

On 5.8.2010 I replaced the anchos on this route. The bottom link on the chain was getting warn. I also lowered the anchor about 8 feet. They are now in a more practical place where the belayer can see AND hear the climber while threading the chains. It also gives you a little more slack on a 60M rope when you lower off.

Great route. Long and fun. Someone had tick marked basically every hold from halfway up though. Even wrote "Hi" in chalk on one hold. Really bad etiquette in my opinion. Also, one of the bolts is a spinner. It was the fourth spinning bolt of the days climb at Orangutang wall so I forget which bolt it was.

We got nice shade in the late afternoon.
Really great route with fun moves the whole way. I really like Orangutan Wall, thanks Jason!
