Very cool route. Very long second pitch. Bring lots of fist sized gear, but climb the face.

This is the obvious left facing dihedral that splits the east wall of this formation. The first pitch begins on a ledge above a lower cliffband (as does Orangutan) and is a splitter, low angle OW/chimney.

The second pitch is over 100 feet long and is really fun. Lots of lichen but it does not detract from the fun. Another 100 ascents and this thing will clean right up.
