The Orange Cave is an awesome way to start a trip and get an initial feel for the climbing on the Brac. As the shade hits this area in the early afternoon (2:00 in March), take the morning to check out what other things the island has to offer (snorkeling, caves, beach combing, etc), and then hit this area at the end of the day for some climbing. The grades here are beginner to moderate, with a good selection of excellent 5.10s, and the setting is as beautiful as it gets.
Drive all the way down to the end of the South Side Road. When the road ends, park, get out of your car and take a pleasant walk along the beach. Watch the cliffside to your left for a large orange cave, if you walk for more than about 10 minutes without seeing it you have probably gone too far. When you’re nearly perpendicular to the cave, begin walking up toward it. There is a good trail through the rocks to get you there.

Once through these moves you will find yourself eye level with a small cave, take a nice rest here. The next move is awesome!
