About Turtle Lake:

Some pretty good climbing close to town but still not very popular for some reason, could be the steep approach that takes about 20 minutes.
Nearest town or city: Durango
Directions: From main turn onto 25th and follow it a couple miles, then take a right on County Road 205. After passing the lake you will see the bouldering area of Turtle Lake and you'll know you're there. Follow the trail to the cliff band that is west above the bouldering.
