Stemming on Orphan. (5.9)

Description 

A fun but short route up the prominent Right-Facing corner, with a neat hand traverse crux.

Location 

This route tackles the obvious corner just to the left of "Block and Tackle" and a stone's throw left of the Sugarloaf area. Climb up cracks to a stance beneath the roof, and hand traverse out to the left, before mantling up and back right to the chains.

Aka "Minutia" (so-called in the 85 Campbell guide).
Classic 5.8, steep for the grade for Squamish.
