BETA PHOTO: Lost Orbit Rock - East Face detail.
Start 8' left of Lost Orbit at the base of an attractive orange-colored face. Preclip the first bolt and then bust a crimpy crux right off the deck to gain a good edge at the second bolt. After clipping the 2nd bolt start heading up and left on steep but positive incut plates to the fifth bolt where the plates suddenly run-out for your hands. The next bit is balancy and delicate as you get stood up on the highest plate while palming the features and then make a final highstep/mantle to a sloping ramp with anchors.
Originally climbed to just below the 5th bolt, the anchors were later pulled and the climb extended to it's logical finish, adding another crux to this quality route. Powerful and physical down low but subtle and technical up high, this climb has something for everyone.
6 bolts, chain anchors
