Seems the descriptions for Gaucho Marx and Do Rein Me (presently "Unknown") are mixed up. Odd since the poster of this route was on the FA.

Gaucho Marx begins about 30+ feet left and uphill of Right On, just down, right and below the big pine tree marking the start of Orange Flake.

Climb up a indistinct water streak past two bolts to a bolt on Orange Flake, continue directly up the "Orange" flake feature -- Orange Flake route traverses right here -- passing two more bolts until a flake/ledge with a two bolt anchor is reached. Rappel 85+ feet from this anchor (shared with Kid Caligula and Do Rein Me).
