BETA PHOTO: Turtle Head, 5.7 (60').

Description 

Climb past 4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor over slopey holds. The rock is crumbly in places, but this route should improve with more cleaning. Not recommended for the novice 5.7 leader.


Location 

This route starts 30' left (downhill) from Orange You Glad.


Protection 

4 quickdraws and something for the 2 bolt anchor (with chains).

This climb shares an anchor with River Rats.

In the guidebook, it states that this route is a 5.7. We thought that it was at least two grades harder than the climb to the left (River Rats).

Agree on the under-rating. Had an easier time on the 5.7 and the 5.9 Loyalist to the left.
