Comments: Charlie, typically they are not. I can think of about a half-dozen total at Turkey Rocks. Count on building your own belay anchors and walk-of descents! Enjoy this special place.

Comments: I remember having a long sling on crux of B&T, as I did not do the moves using the second left side-pull. At one point, my draws were on both of these routes but must have vanished over the years.

Chris, a few long draws at choice spots on DS will help with some tough or early clips and also with rope drag when running the pitch in its entirety.

Comments: Wow. Thanks for all the feedback! Engagement is very different from a route like Arch Enemy for many reasons, and would be more comparable to routes such as Coyote Tower or Earth Angel, also not everyone's cup of tea.

Comments: Glad to hear it has cleaned up, Chris! This was not the case 5 years ago. How would you compare the difficulties to its neighbor to the left?

Comments: Great warm up and fun hand and fist jams with good feet holds every now and then. Belay takes a few bomber small stoppers on a ramp ledge.

Comments: there was only a single quicklink on each of the anchor bolts. Either someone took the lower-off biners or doesn't mind twisted ropes. I added a dinky rap ring to each though those probably won't last long.
