Blake trying hard on Optical Illusion.

This short route packs quite a punch. A couple moves off the ground gets you to a stance under the roof. A hard pull off the stance will take you through decent holds, pumpy, painful jams, and tricky footwork. The crux is pulling the flare at the lip!


Far right end of Orchard wall is where you'll find this 20' roof crack.


Single rack from .3 Camalot to 4. As of this post date, there is a two-nut anchor (I added one) with a single oval biner, and also a fixed #1 Camalot at the lip.
