BETA PHOTO: The "Early Manhood" block.


This is a small but really nice block. The rock is solid and the moves pleasing. It's a good stop off when heading to the back (North End) of the "Tortuga" area's main formation.

Getting There 

"Early Manhood block" is located just behind (North) the Gilligan's Islands formation on the Western end of "Tortuga's" main rock formation.

The "Early Manhood block" is just [right] (West) and around the corner from the "Widower Wall."

On the left side of the block start down low in a nice horizontal crimp rail. Power up with your left and work the scooped arete as high as you can. Then get your feet up and toss for the sloping finish. Down climb the back of the block. Short up sweet. The moves are quite good and are worth a burn!!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

Start on the V1 and traverse into the V2, hands down the most enjoyable line on the block. We recently cleaned the top. Really a fun stop!

Early Manhood is actually just RIGHT of the Widower Wall. It's between Widower Wall and the South Wall. It's pretty much attached to the main Tortuga formation.
