Yeah, the Fin is just some lame lowball ;)

This is a very convenient local spot for Durangatangs, not surprising that every conceivable part of the smaller blocks have been climbed by solo boulderers after work. Personally I think Turtle Lake is an awesome little boulder garden and has plenty of tall stuff too. Nov 4, 2016
Damn, boulderers will climb anything! There are a few worthy problems here, but, by and large, the boulders are tiny with 3-4 "problems" squeezed onto them. Just do the classics, and call it a day. Nov 1, 2016
