All the information is the same as for the regular "Tortuga Area" except one thing... the following information is intended for children under the age of about 7-8 years old.

I have a five year old daughter and it is often hard to find good problems for the both of us that are located in the same area. Well this is my attempt to document some really cool little kid problems that are next to or close to the big kid boulder problems.

I hope that climbing families will find this information useful. Oh, by the way... we have been using the "K" or (KID) scale to make an attempt at determining the difficulty of the boulder problem. The hardest problem we have pushed with the "K" scale is about "K4." Anyway, to all those families out there we do hope you enjoy.

Hello Kitty (K3+) V-easy 3  CO : Morrison/Evergreen : ... : Tortuga For The Kids
Start in a black colored wash/dish. Move up into the right handed side pull. Next match with the left to make the side pull an under cling. Move right hand to a pinch and move the feet up. Work the left hand onto a nice left handed pocket/crimp and pull the right up onto a sloper. Move the feet up and push for the top out. A real nice problem that involves both power and technique....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
