Description Suggest change

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.

Getting There Suggest change

From the base of Echo Canyon, take the purple climberÂ’s trail past Motorboat Rock to the wall behind it. The climbs are all to the left of Jack Knife. The orange colored rock is hard to miss.
