Obvious roof with crack about 80' off the ground on S side.


South East end of Turtle Rock.


Large cams.

Start out from behind the small pinnacle working up the crack. Move thru the roof and eventually find your own belay station. Scramble off the north slabs to descend. A standard rack with some extra large gear will do. The pitch is around 210' long. Apr 2, 2010
The guidebook calls this 5.9+, as would I. Awesome climb! May 18, 2013
