Tony on Orange Fantasea.


Start on a boulder and navigate through a few interesting moves to a left hand flake/side pull. Endure a difficult move after clipping the second bolt. To those of us who have had the pleasurable experience of climbing rotten rock in our days, this thing looks like it's gonna peel off, though when I put my hands on it it was solid. Once through these moves you will find yourself eye level with a small cave, take a nice rest here. The next move is awesome! While your resting gather some beta for the roof, then do it!

After pulling the large roof, the line turns vertical and continues just to the right of the bolts. Pull a final difficult move through the upper roof and clip the anchors that are shared with Snorkel.


The steep like on the right side of the Orange Cave.


7 TITANIUM bolts to a 2 bolt anchor (shared with Goin' to Cayman with a Snorkel in My Jeans). Clipping double draws or slings on bolts 3 and 4 will reduce rope drag.
