Comments: Great route. One thing that I thought was interesting though is the beta for the top-out scramble. From the tree at the top of the last pitch, we walked left up the ramp for 20 feet, then climbed the 10' (5.easy) step up to the fat, squat tree, then scrambled the 3rd class ridge to another 10' 5.easy step directly to the summit block.

Going right around the corner as the beta suggests looked like a heinous chimney thing. The way we went was super easy, and really quite fun simul climbing /... more >>

Comments: From a distance the climbing over there looks like some serious potential. Any thoughts on how to help open access?

Comments: Whats the deal with the rock on the other side of the river? Looks great, and sunny for colder days. Is it in the park or on private land? Access?

Comments: Leave the 4 in the car.
Peg traverse was NBD, no more spicy than any of the other traversing pitches on the route, and none of them felt dangerous. The crux pitches took great gear. Cool route, even the 'easier' pitches were in-your-face, steep, and sustained.

With 70m rope:
Link first 3 with some simul-climbing.
Link 7 to 9 (bad rope drag, back-clean a ton of gear), 9-11, 11 to beginning of 4th class ledge (just barely! had 2 feet of rope left). Unrope and scramble to top from there.

Comments: The first pitch is the only scary one. and it is scary. I remember it having slab moves on poor rock with 60 foot ground fall potential. The rest of the route however was kick ass - enough pro to be safe but runout enough to keep your attention and keep the excitement level high

I remember thinking that you could climb the first pitch of Dream of Wild Turkeys and then traverse like 8 feet over the the first bolt on Rock warrior. You skip the dangerous climbing and don't miss any of the good ... more >>

Comments: climbed the route in november and agree with the above poster. The first pitch has serious runouts and some real climbing in the 'no fall zone,' be sure to be very solid on 5.9 OW / squeeze.

That said, its a desert tower so maybe that is to be expected anyways. I highly recommended the route if you're comfortable with runouts at the grade. And leave most of the rack behind. a few finger to hand cams cover the few gear placements on the route - don't haul a heavy rack through the chimneys!
