Description 

Turtle rock is a free-standing block/cliff-band that is one of the first areas you will come to if hiking uphill from the lower parking. The routes on the right side get afternoon sun, but the base is typically shaded for most of the day due to the significant tree cover. Most of the rock on this formation is of very high quality, with only ocassional moss and choss. The routes are all bolt-protected, save for one 5.8 crack climb, and the climbs are right next to each other, with many link-ups and variations. Climbs vary from 5.8 to 5.11.


Getting There 

The approach takes approximately 45 minutes, and is long but not particularly steep. There has been very good trail work all the way up the hill and the trail is nice and flat the whole way up.
