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 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.

Climbs through thin edges and crimps starting left of the tree. Stellar climb at the grade. Originally rated 11a, but recent repeats look to downgrade it. A good slab climber it will feel more like a moderate to hard 10....[more]   Browse More Classics in TX
