Description 

The easiest of the routes on Shipwreck, an easy start leads to a boulder problem pulling the lip of a small roof. After clipping the 2nd bolt start traversing left to an undercling flake and then lieback the flake leading to some delicate crimp moves just below the anchors.

Location 

Tortuga is the leftmost route on the wall when looking at shipwreck rock, starting approximately in the middle of the face. It is often the last route that is accessible as the river drops down.

Protection 

Bolts to anchors with fixed biners
