This is a short, but sweet, perplexing route on the far right end of the Turtle Wall. Hang on tight to the starting moves climbing up a few feet to some comfortable and welcoming huecos. From these huecos climb through crimps (read: you'll have to let go of the undercling) to a committing and intense crux. Break free of this dilemma and stay true to the nail biting slab finish. There are many M's in the word commitment. This route will add a few extra.
Four bolts plus chains.
Turtle Soup is easily found by walking north along the base of the Turtle Wall until you reach the large cave. Turtle Soup is the last face climb before entering the cave.
