Description

The Turtle Rock circuit is extensive and home to over 50 quality problems ranging from V-easy to V11 with most being in the V5 and under range. There's something for everyone here with desperate slabs, steep edges, scary highballs and even some run and jump problems.

Some of the better problems here include Turtle Face, Left (V0), Classic Curl (V0+), Act of Contrition (V0+ R), Morning Glory (V1+), Turtle Face Center (V2), Block Party (V3), Digitalis Destructi (V4 R), So High (V5 R) and the sit to So High (V11).

Getting There

Park in the large lot outside the entrance to Real Hidden Valley or closer to Turtle Rock depending upon how crowded it is and then walk around the west end of Turtle Rock to reach the main area. Expect a level 5-10 minute walk from the car.
