This climb was thin but good practice for beginners


Other side of the Y Crack route; Used this route to set up top rope for Y crack...Use obvious cracks in the top for placement of gear as backup

Only 2 bolts so it might be a scary lead if you prefer more than one bolt per twenty five feet of cheese grater. Nov 18, 2007
My son and I led Turtle yesterday. There are few hand and foot holds making this the hardest 5.6 we have ever climbed. The rock is very granular and it bites into climbing rubber but that means climbing on friction and slicing up finger tips, a psychological strain. Mar 12, 2009

This was easy slab climbing. Great and varied holds. Should be no problem for any veteran granite climbers. Oct 30, 2011

The bottom is pretty stiff, more like joshua tree 5.6, but after the second bolt it's a breeze. I'd suggest warming up the fingers to make it easier. Oct 18, 2018
