5' left of Freedom; anchors are next to a diagonaling crack that splits the cliff edge. Shares bottom belay with Freedom. Beautiful huecos filled with globular crystals lead to an airy orange arete. Then up a steep flake system and over a bulge to the finale - a technical crux. Rock & Ice #69 cover photo!

5 out of 5 stars Throwin the Tortuga

I said I would have named this one, "Don't look down, don't look up". It was amazing once I got through the crux.
