Description 

Agent Orange is a test of both slab wizardry and jamming prowess.

Start up a flake/block and climb to a comfortable stance below the black slab. Delicately move up the face trending right past 3 bolts and the first crux, then veer left, climbing past another bolt and the second crux. Rest, then tackle the pumpy, right-angling, gear-protected corner to a double bolt anchor.

Note: This route gets a lot of mid- to late morning sun.


Location 

About midway down the cliff from the left at a large right-facing corner with a block/flake at its base. About 200 feet to the left of the Vultures Wall.


Protection 

10 draws, and singles from .5 to a #2 Camalot. A single 60m rope gets you down.

New chain anchors here, no more ratty ol' tat.

it should be noted that it is wise to stick clip the second bolt, if you botched the clip you would hit the block just off the ground. the slab crux is very tricky and barely there, the upper crux more of a V2+ boulder problem with a pumpy corner to finish. excellent route.

Also note that cold shut before trad section is spinning and the weld did not look good.

You can protect the move below the second bolt with an orange metolius or yellow mastercam. There is a crack that fits either / both of these perfectly. I fell going for the bolt and appreciated having a piece there to keep me from going splat on the ledge. I still need to finish this climb, though.
