Brian Gulden on Orangutan Flake


Climb the obvious right arching feature to a tree. Rap from tree. Unfortunately, it is sometimes wet, being located beneath a tree island.


At right side of cliff, 40 feet right of Oh! Mr. Friction. Obvious right arching feature.

I got the first 'third' on this one. Yee-ha!

The Pilsner Prophet (Chris Little) Speaks: It was a long time ago, but I still remember Diab leading this one. He used to buy a pair of shoes, and then sell them when he didn't like them anymore. That was how I got my first pair of sticky shoes. But I digress... I think there were more of us than what is listed here for the first ascent. Diab led the route, and we started following him up it. Somehow it seemed funny, or clever. Am I wrong, or are there some of us out there who aren't being credited? This is very serious!!!
