Sweet blocky corners.

Description 

SDS at the lowest point of the left end of the boulder (closest to the Tigerlily Boulder), follow the series of rising, blocky corners until the blunt, sloping arete around the centre. Make moves to edges higher up and roll over the lip, finishing up the low angle slab. The traverse right can be somewhat pumpy if you move slowly with the crux coming at the move to the edges once the underside of the boulder steepens.

Location 

On the shorter boulder next to the Tigerlily Boulder. The Tigerlily Area is the second last area with established problems if you are following the lower trail along the swamp which begins at The Gateway Boulder. Tigerlily is a very prominent and aesthetic line and Orbital Traverse stands out as well with its blocky corners.

Protection
