Orange Flake (Joshua Tree)
This is a fun 3 pitch 5.8 route on Saddle Rock -- it starts as a delicate face climb, bolted Joshua Tree style, just barely-barely enough to keep you on the edge of sheer terror. As you get to the crack, your delight of finally having abundant pro opportunities soon fades away, as the crack turns into rather steep and exceptionally brutal offwidth. We did not notice anything orange about the route except for my orange shirt! Photo: courtesy of Mick Brohan.
