Make varied .9 movies as you ascend the Turtle in a forested setting. Stays cool in the summer and damp in the winter.


This route starts midway up the west face of Turtle Rock. There is a large snag just up hill from the flattened out belay spot.

Paradigm Shift is a great route, but it is more of a 5.8 than a 5.9, in my opinion. Loads of fun though!
