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.
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.
