Description 

Climb the short left facing corner through a few tricky opening moves to better holds above and then carefully climb to the high first bolt. Proceed through the next few bolts on good holds between long stretches. The grade drops at the top as you move up through large chicken heads to the anchors.


Location 

Start ten feet right of Orange Oswald at a steep left facing ramp. As of Aug-2011 the start was marked with the chalk letters PDS which I assume at the equipper’s initials.


Protection 

Sport.

The route may feel a little harder on lead because of a sloppy bolt job through the middle which breaks up the flow. Also, the first bolt seems unnecessarily high but this may keep the crowds at bay and leave the route open on busy weekends.

I have this recorded in my book as a mystery 5.10a/b that I first noticed on 5/29/11

In my opinion, it is one of the most fun routes on the wall.

In the new Mike Williams guidebook this climb is called Orange Express and is a 5.10c. It takes one piece of gear at the bottom then 7 bolts to the anchors.
