Emile trudging through the spring-time mank-fest
This is a classic wandering line up the weakness in the left side of the cliff. Due to its positioning and line of travel after climbing 20 feet you are way in to the exposed zone and it just gets better as you go.
From a large flake clip the first bolt and start up the nice steep juggy holds clipping a few more bolts to a stance. It is helpful to reach back to unclip the first two bolts to reduce rope drag. At this point you are traversing right under a steep wall and as you head right and the ground below falls away you feel way exposed. After the traverse make a few moves up to good holds and traverse left following the weak line to the anchors. Or at a slightly harder grade and more exposure try the Oh My! finish (5.11b/c)
Start at a 2 bolt anchor just down from the orangahang belay bolt.
12 bolts to anchor. 60m rope.

Where do you belay from? The double eyebolt anchor below orangahang? Or the bottom of the slab?

Usually at the belay below the one for Orangahang. It is a bit of a cluster up there, so best to try to do it when others aren't also trying to get on the other routes unless you all can come to a civil arrangement
