Touche Away, 5.9


This route begins 25' right of Cornered. Start up a 20' slab to a ledge. Continue up a right trending flake with ample patinas and some slightly awkward positioning. The patinas become more plentiful as you ascend.


Gear to 2". Bolted anchor.


Located on the North face of Turtle Rock. To start, scramble up and all the way left on a low angle slab to the base of the right facing corner system.
