This area, also known as Orange Rocks, sports 3 great "clip & go" routes from 5.10a to 5.10d. The bolts are in good condition and properly spaced. The rock is hard, clean, and has the texture of Joshua Tree Rock. It's in the sun almost all day long and dries out quickly after a rain shower. The left route is Gold Rush rated at 5.10b, the middle is Pete's 5.12 rated at 5.10d, and the right side is Mid-life Crisis rated at 5.10a. Gold Rush can be easily top roped by scrambling around to the left side of the tower. Pete's can be top roped with a bit more effort. An anchor bolt between Pete's & Mid-life will keep your belayer from falling down the hill. Step carefully to avoid damaging the vegetation! Since this area is right next to the summit trail, please be respectful of hikers by not sorting your gear on the access trail. As an added bonus, this area has great views of the City and Cerro San Luis.
