Orange Out Direct

Bret rests before the final exit
Orange Out Direct is one thee moderate classics to do at the Overlook. From the base, climb up jugs to gain a nice corner with moderate moves, always headed toward the big overhang above. At the top of the moderate corner, a burly overhanging jamcrack (crux) puts you in a cool (and unbelievably moderate as it turns out) overhanging chimney that takes you to the top.
Center of the wall, about 25 feet to the right of the Morning's Mourning corner.
Nuts and cams from small up to about #2 Camalot size. Maybe take one #3 Camalot size.

Did this route in late march. All of the rest of the overlook was dry, but there was a greenish brown greasy mud-like substance covering the crux. Didn't see it until I was 5 feet away and yuck! made it a bit harder than anticipated. watch out early season!

I would highly recommend this route to those venturing here, then again as a visitor I thought this entire place was aesthetic...
