The original line of pitch 1 of Orangutan, since the bolts were drilled to the left, this will probably continue to see little traffic now.

Starts in a 9' corner, 25 feet right of the Long Chimney on Open Face. Go up three ledges using easy rock, keeping right towards the end.


Up the middle of Orangutan Buttress, between Open Face and the Great Zawn.


Runout. Standard rack. A pair of belay/rappel chains on the ledge at the top of the pitch.
