Yes, I went and had a look a few weeks ago. I went up Timber Camp Tr, off of Greeley Ponds Tr. Is that the road you are referring to? I followed that past the clearing (high camp) and kept on as it turned into a narrower trail until it seemed like I was heading away from the crag and up towards the ridge line, so I back tracked a little and bushwhacked north maybe half an hour (pretty thick) to come in just left of the orange wall. On the way out I scrambled down to the toe of the scree field and then shwacked back to the trail. Directly below the scree was rough, as to be expected, but then it got easier.
I thought there was some potential on the orange wall, but you are right, it would require all bolting, and a ton of trundling of loose rock to put up good routes. I was hoping for more consistant steepness. Due to the fact that it is a little far for the offerings and it will require a ton of work (it looks very involved getting to the top to rap in), I probably won't be doing anything there soon. The easier stuff to the right actually looked kind of cool, with interesting rock, but again, it is a bit of a thrash to get to. I had to crawl around thick vegetation at the base to get around.
