Description 

Located near the southwestern edge of Turtle Rock in an area filled with boulders, this triangle shaped block is home to a dozen or more problems from V-easy to V4 with most being V2 and under.

Slab climbing is the theme here and quality problems like the Northwest Arete (5.8), Turtle Face, Left (V0) and Turtle Face, Center (V2) will either hone your skills or help convince you that friends don't let friends climb slab.


Getting There 

Walk south along the west face of Turtle Rock (the obvious large formation) following a well-defined trail to reach a large open area. The Wedge Boulder, with it's distinctive triangle shape, will be one of the first boulders seen in the distance.
