This is a tall boulder on the eastern edge of the gallery to the East of the large, prominent spire on the South side of Mt. Baldy. When at the "Seul Avec Dieux" Boulder, head in a southeast direction through some small Aspen trees. About a minute away is the "Orange Roughy" Boulder. You will recognize this boulder by its color and the chalk.

Landings vary depending on the problem. The boulder's namesake, "Orange Roughy" (V6), has an excellent landing and is worth doing.

Getting There
