Extends the first pitch of 'Sordid Orchids' by 12m and adds three bolts. Sustained wall climbing with crimpers and reach moves. Climbs more like a Blue Mountains wall climb rather than a 'Taipan' steep sloper fest.
Start: Start as for 'Sordid Orchids'. Climb Sordid Orchids to horizontal break after last RB. Instead of traversing off right into the birdshit, head straight up wall above (FH), step left (#2 camalot) and then up again (2 FHs). At large slopey rail step right into Sordid Orchids pitch 2 and climb this for 2m to a single U-bolt loweroff (60m rope required). Above this U-bolt is the aid move on Sordid Orchids pitch 2.
First Ascent: Neil Monteith & Will Monks, 2005
