Around to the left, the back side of the Orange Arete boulder has an overhanging face. Sit down on a block facing the boulder, with you feet dangling in between. There will be a deeper pit to your left. Place your feet on the wall and pull on and do a series of surprisingly tricky and powerful moves involving good footwork to angle a little left and up to a possibly crumbly jug (I cleaned it a bunch, but it is that mica infused quartz rock) Next, diagonal right on nice schist holds to a committing top-out


As you walk the main path, just before you get to the Shipyard boulder look up the hill a couple hundred feet and you can see the obvious Orange Arete boulder. Do not approach it directly, rather, go to the shipyard, walk around back, and angle over to the left side of the OA boulder. Hook around to its left rear quadrant.


3 or 4 pads, the more the merrier. The landing is a jumble of boulders. Spot. There are some bolts on top of the boulder which you can use for scoping and cleaning off the top moves (recommended) You can get to them by scrambling around the back.
