The Orange Peel Area is the collection of climbs between Throne Rock and the Triple Cracks Sanctuary on the wall behind Motorboat Rock. The majority of the routes here are bolted face climbs that ascend the orange colored rock (hence the name). Cave Crack (5.6) is probably the best moderate trad route in the park.
