This was a lot of fun, and I probably would have been too scared to attempt it if I hadn't had this route description. Thanks! I thought the steep surface of the final boulder on the orange route was actually just as scary as the big step shown in red. Coming down the red seemed non-scary to me; just slid down on my butt.

One thing that I didn't realize based on the description was that although there's exposure, it's not 3000' of exposure. If you fall on the orange/red route, you're only falling 5 or 10 feet down to a ledge. Of course that *could* still be enough to cause a very serious injury, or maybe even kill you.

Thanks bcrowell2. I was happy to provide this information, and very pleased that it has provided some benefit to others such as yourself... prior to my trip I found the lack of detail available out there on this route a little disconcerting.

I will also modify the description a little to hopefully add more clarity.

Thanks for the feedback!
