Description

This is the dihedral on the far RIGHT side of Turtle Rock and makes for a great first short lead climb for kids.

Start in a right-facing dihedral, then step left into a crack.

Climb up to the bolt. Stay right and traverse around right side of the bulge.

Find the good crack for belay anchors.

Location

It is on the far right side of the crag.

Find a tree growing from the rock only 6 feet from the ground. The start begins about 6 feet RIGHT of Fiona's Route.

Protection

Rack of wires, 1 bolt.

This is a good route for small kids (who are big enough for the approach). When setting an anchor, beware of fragile rock at the lip. Sep 19, 2015
