Per Hansen Wendlandt: this is not a good area for beginners and kids, because you have to scramble up the most dangerous sections to get to them.
I would like to add the sub-area: The Corridor.
The Corridor offers a number of sport routes along with a few trad routes and is located in a narrow corridor south of Turtle Rock. Around 30-50 feet in length, the climbs are in the shade most of the day.
There are two ways to approach The Corridor both of which are 5-10 minute hikes. The Corridor is located at 38.8808, -106.1476.
If approaching from the south off CR 371:
Drive ~300 yards south from Bob Rock parking area or a few feet past the third tunnel (if heading north on CR 371), and park on the east side of the road (38.8806, -106.1483). This is also the same parking for the crag Almost A Tunnel. From the parking area, hike up the hill (~100 yards) to a notch in the large rocks; this is The Corridor.
If approaching from the north off CR 375:
From the Turtle Rocks Campground, park in the closest parking/camping area to Turtle Rock (38.8815, -106.1468). Hike directly west to the base of Turtle Rock (~100 feet) and then south for ~200 feet on a faint trail to The Corridor.
