Description 

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 

From the base of Echo Canyon, take the purple climber’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.

Despite the modest grade, Cave Crack is one of the best routes in the park. Fun climbing, great protection, and a unique location make this climb a must do. The start of Cave Crack is located above Jack Knife (see Throne Rock). While it's possible to scramble through the boulders to reach to base, climbing Jack Knife is a lot easier (and more enjoyable). From the top of Jack Knife, scramble down the back side of the summit block and scamper through a small opening under a large detached boul...[more]   Browse More Classics in Texas
