Description

This was the first route done on the crag and remains a favorite way to introduce newcomers to Turtle Rock.

Start in the short, steep, little, left-facing dihedral that sits 12 feet directly below a small tree. Climb a 5.7 shallow crack up to the tree and sling it for pro. Tip toe up and LEFT, out the slab to a bolt. Trend left into a crack and climb it to its top. Continue up until you reach 1 bolt anchor next to a nice crack for a hex. Belay.

Continue up the mountaineering second pitch or carefully walk off to the RIGHT/south and down to the base.

Protection

Rack of tricams, rack of wires, 1 bolt, and a 1 anchor bolt at the top belay.
