Description

This is a "superarea" to help organize and clarify some of the climbs in this vicinity.

Included here are Turtle Rock, Baby Turtle, and The Corridor.

Getting There

From downtown Buena Vista, head north on Colorado Ave for 2.5 miles, which turns into CR 371. Turn right on to CR 375, after 0.8 mile the turtle rocks campground will be on the left. Parking for Turtle Rocks and subareas can be found at the western side of the campground, closest to Turtle Rocks proper.

Parking here should allow for easy, safe approaches for all climbs at this area and subareas. Other approaches exist but may not be as straight forward or safe.
