Description

Orange Slice is an anomalous problem at Horse Pens. Instead of climbing on low-angle slopers, the route follows a slightly overhung crimp line. Starting low in a crack/pocket (you can also move in from a crack on the left at the same grade), climb a series of almost identical thin, incut crimps. The line is obvious, and trends towards an obvious two-hand slopey pocket. Hold it together for one last long move off a sidepull to a jug on a horizontal feature. Traverse right and drop off.

Location

Climbs the first 18 feet of one of the large outcrops in the Turtle Rock area. From the campsite, locate a nice orange face to the left of Growing Stone, Boy Scout Crack etc. Probably the closest problem to the showerhouse.

Protection

Several pads. Falling on the last move could mean trouble.
