Description 

Ride, 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.

Location 

Five feet left of Stone Frogs.

Protection 

Bigger cams down bottom,a couple of bolts, then finger sized stuff to the top.
