BETA PHOTO: Orangina climbs the center of the face beneath the...
This quality face climb is a gem in a sea of choss on the Mudwall. Engaging face climbing down low is protected by cams in horizontal seams. Above, the angle steepens where tenuous, technical climbing is protected by 4 bolts, including the technical crux. The upper face is featured with small, sharp holds cemented with calcite.
The 5.11c portion is reasonably protected with bolts. The PG-13 section comes in the lower section and is probably no harder than 5.10+/5.11-.
Where the trail meets the wall is an enormous roof capping a section of face that is smooth and orange. Bear Paw, an old Layton Kor-Larry Dalke route climbs the left side of this roof. Orangina climbs the orange face underneath the roof.
Cams from micro to #2 Camalot with extras in the micro to finger-size. 4 bolts protect the upper face. Two bolt anchor.
