Climb the corner through an absolute ton of bird poo*. Several of the bolts are so covered in bird poo that you have to knock chunks off to get a clip in and they're so camouflaged they actually can't be detected from the ground. Somewhat awkward climb, dodging poo seems to bring it into the 10 range. Very chossy too, just about blinded my poor belayer.

As for parking, the approach seems to be shorter from the butt-side of The Turtle walking down and around (just keep staying right as you drive in until it ends in a parking area) walk downhill then follow the rock left. Neighboring routes to the right are Triple Delight, 5.12a, and Smack and Spray, 5.11d.
