|The Big Wall
This route climbs the left edge of The Big Wall section. Start the same as Chenoo. This is a serious climb on chossy rock and should not be taken lightly. The crux moves are bolt protected, but a fall anywhere on the route could lead to serious injury or death. Do not attempt this route if people are climbing in the area due to the potential for rock fall.
P1: Climb the slab of Chenoo past an overlap to a larger roof. Place gear and pull the roof to a ledge with a pine tree. 5.8 PG-13 50’
P2: Move left from the tree to the chossy aręte. Follow the left angling aręte with corners and flakes placing gear along the way past two spaced bolts to the pine trees on top. 5.9 R/X 105’

The moves and position on Adventure Punks is great. The rock quality and deadly fall potential makes this a serious route for the true adventure climber. I do not recommend climbing this route, if you do please be considerate of others in the area. The whole climb is loose and rock will fly. It is best to climb it when nobody is around.
A fall at any point will send you into the death spikes and choss that make up the corner of Orthanc.
