The twin to Lesser Spire, ORP hosts a handful of poorly documented climbs and plenty of room for exploration. Part steep walls of bomber stone, part blocky meandering, and part flaky dirty granite, it's name reflects the ambiguous disrespect that early climbers felt towards it, "Old Raunchy Penis". Despite this unflattering name, you will find good 3-4 pitch climbs here, with options for sun or shade depending on the season.
ORP shares the same approach as Lesser Spire, easy by Organ mtn standards. Descent can be made by walking off the south-east flank, or by finding scattered rappel stations consisting of manky slings tied around suspicious blocks.
