It is 10 feet to the right of Turtle's Tail (mixed route). This route starts directly under the first bolt and follows the inside of the arete to the anchors (starting 6 ft. right of the first bolt lowers the grade ). It is a surprisingly decent route. Originally graded 11d, Sandrock 12a though.

4 out of 5 stars new route

great route, I was expecting a decent route, but this ended up being one of the best routes I've climbed at Sandrock. 3-stars in my opinion.
