DescriptionRide, ride, the turtle. This is a super cool rock climb with great moves, variety and a few cruxey sections.
Start up a short but thuggish hand crack to a ledge in a left facing corner that tapers out above. Climb the corner (bolt) to the top then push and pull to make a step right gaining a sloping stance before the crux, bolt. Traverse right a few thin moves into a crack then follow it to the top.
Lower from bolted anchor with biners.
Originally led on all gear and a pin it was a very committing route. The addition of a couple of bolts make this a real fun route for anyone comfortable at the grade.
