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.


6 bolts + 2-bolt anchor.

Very fun climb! Most of the route is very easy, around 5.6. The crux is definitely harder, but my partner and I both agree it's definitely not a 5.9+ (I followed). Maybe 5.8+, if not easier.
