Description 

This may seem contrived at first, but once I figured out the path, it really is a pretty logical line that is more direct than Orange Groovy.

Start on the obvious, huge hold low and right, moving straight up to some crimps, up and left to a shared hold on Orange Groovy (the shallow flake). Go up and right to a small crimp and then straight up to the obvious, huge flake at the top. This climbs the right side of the face, but I never ended up using the right arete at all, because the climb never really logically put me in a position to use it. I didn't scrub the crimps with a brush, because I didn't have one, but I cleared off the lichen with my fingers enough to be climbed. The big motivator for this climb was to use the interesting foot cobble above the start hold and the finishing jug flake.

Enjoy!

Location 

It is on the right side of the Orange Smoothy face.
