The orange coloured wall with a small overlap crossing it, above the Crimea Wall and above and right of Javelin Wall.

Access: 

Approach as for Javelin and Crimea Walls.
Start up the LHS of the scree below the Twin Cracks wall may be marked. Follow track until you below a against a smooth wall - follow the track R and up until you are on the spur again continue past the turnoff to the Javelin Wall and instead of moving R to reach the Crimea Wall climb over a small rocky knob. A rough track with some fixed rope heads up to end below the middle of the Orange Wall.
NB The description in Rock Deluxe South should be avoided as it is about twice as long as the new one.

DESCENT: Back the same way or head to the left of the wall and follow the old track into the stream bed - descend down this with some downclimbing or abseil options and eventually you will arrive at the bottom of the Javelin Wall.
