Panorama from "Orange Crush"


Pretty cool orange arete that sports some interesting climbing. Crimpy edges start you off climbing either side of the arete till you can climb out left to a small shelf that affords a great rest. Climb back out right to the arete and up some powerful moves through the crux and up to some easier 5.10 terrain.


The route is located on the far southern shoulder of Yeti dome which is actually located on the Southeastern side of Musick Mountain. Follow the dirt road from the Big Creek turnoff to the lookout tower/repeater station then follow the rounded ridge down to the cliffs. The base of the route requires scrambling down a slab a little bit to approach. It is easy to scramble up and around to the top of the route to set a TR off bolts as well.

This is an awesome route with a spectacular view. This route is a great project for them working on there 5.11's. Though the climb itself is only 65ft when you look down it can be a bit scary for some. After a few burns on TR I couldn't get pass the second bolt. I diffidently think this route is an .11c. I cant wait to get back on it and finish it. It will be a proud lead. Also want to give some props to Scott Williams, Wade Griffith, Sterling Killion for putting up this route.
