Just to the left of Andromeda, climb the slab to seams that become a wider (flared) crack. Follow this to the top, using the left vertical crack to top out.


Start on the left side of the Andromeda slab, which is left of the large corner (Gemini).


Standard ADK trad rack. Gear anchor/sling a tree.

It's common to start on Andromeda (slab), using its bolt to protect the opening moves, then move left to the flared crack system after climbing above the bolt. The true start O'Ryan's Belt seeps. The rock and quality of climbing is better to the right, and safer (?).
