Hi there, ORP experts. I attempted Orgy yesterday, but was seduced into the nice hand crack/flake system that (I think) stays left of the Orgy route. I followed it up and left past a giant detached flake and ended up finishing up the left arête of the buttress. The climbing was really quite good and provided good pro until the last ~100 feet on the arête. There is a bit of exfoliation going on with the arête climbing. My question is whether anyone knows of an existing route that takes this line. If it is not established as of yet, I am considering cleaning some of the upper pitch and maybe adding a bolt to protect the exposed arête climbing. Any ideas? As is, I think it felt like 5.8R on the Arête and 5.6-7 in the cracks.
