BETA PHOTO: Turkey Chute & Bare Hug


Put up on Thanksgiving Day, this route starts obviously enough, then get’s a little chossy before solidifying again just below a large drill hole feature (the “chute”). The route is much better than the developer’s penchant for word pun’s would indicate…

Follow the shallow dihedral up to the roof. Move around roof on the right and then continue up face on good but chossy holds (don’t get suckered too far left into the dirty ledges!). Head up junky face on blocky features until it dead-ends at a good hold below the blank looking headwall. Make a LONG move to bomber slot underneath eyebrow, then move left to flake feature and continue straight up the “chute” to the anchor.


The start is located in the shallow dihedral between Crescent and Bare Hug. Look for the bolts on the right side of the wall that lead to a roof about 12 feet off the deck.


11 Quickdraws for bolts.
