Orthodox Mountain and Wall Creek Meadows
This peak is located more or less right on the border on the ridge running west from The Deacon-Mt. Ewart area, and south of Wall Creek. The peak is located south of Grimface. The north side, while steep, is mostly pretty ledgy and does not present a huge wall like some of the other faces in the area. Some recently developed scrambles and climbs in this area and on pinnacles between Orthodox and Deacon are not yet fully documented.
