Description 

Climb the nice face past a couple bulges to the bolted anchor. Not a bad face climb.

On the very left edge of the Orange Oswald Wall (actually on the face next to Orange Oswald proper), just where the trail descends to Orange Oswald and left of the ledge where Hippie Dreams begins.


Protection 

5 bolts + 2-bolt anchor.

This is a decent route when the others routes on Orange Oswald are taken. It's got a reachy start that I've seen people use the tree to bypass. The roof about center height can be circumvented by moving right, but it's a lot more fun (and harder) to go direct.
