  • 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.

    Yes, this shows the start of Fiona's Route.
    At the tree, tip toe left to the bolt and continue trending left to the main crack that splits the slab.
