BETA PHOTO: Petrified Turtle Buttress


Just past the mouth of Cane Wash is a big buttress with a large tower standing in front of it. The buttress itself currently has one good moderate free route, but more will be coming eventually.

Getting There 

Hike up the trail along the San Rafael River for an hour and a half until you reach the obvious buttress and tower.
