The Orange Sunshine area is the first part of the cliff you reach from the trail. There are a number of fine cracks and sport routes. The tan, mostly lichen free rock lends a warm, friendly ambience to the area. In mild years, the wall offers good winter climbing.

Jam Exam 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  WA : Tieton River : ... : Orange Sunshine area
Great route. Start with some blocky face climbing (2-3 moves) then get into a perfect hand crack for about 50 feet. Keep an eye on the face for some welcome foot holds....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA

beware encountered a rattlesnake on Saturday that seems to live under the columns at the start of Jam Exam. It's hidden under the columns except when it comes out for sun/hunting. Be cautious when entering that area, starting climbs, and lowering down.
The snake did not have a fully-developed rattle so it may strike without warning.
