The summit of Turtleback Dome offers a small circuit of easy problems and a couple moderates on high friction granite with cool features. The humming generators and radio equipment take away a bit from the ambiance, but the views up valley of El Cap and Half Dome are killer, and you'll probably have the place to yourself. This is a good place to come with beginners or as a family outing. The summit of Turtleback is a high point with no tree cover and so it gets all day sun. Thus, the boulders dry out exceptionally fast after a rain storm, probably faster than any of the other bouldering spots in the Valley.
Coming from the Valley, drive about a half mile past the Rostrum pullout and park at a dirt pullout on the right side of the road just after passing a service road on the left. Walk up the service road to the summit of Turtleback Dome.
