Description 

Follow the left crack system in the photo. The route has a nice variety of crack climbing. It starts a little wide, then some hand crack, a weird chimney section, some more hand crack and a little offwidth at the end.


Location 

This route is located on the north side of Turkey Tail. Hiking along the north side of the Tail coming from the Perch look for cracks in photo. Route starts in left crack. There are several options for descent.
1. Downclimb to the rappel slings of Inner Reaches (60m should work).
2. Uses the Cheese Grater rappel at the top of the route. This will get you down to the starting ledge of Eclipse. Scramble down skiers left from there (60m will work).
3. Climb to Eclipse anchor and rappel to the same ledge as no. 2 (60m should work).


Protection 

Standard rack up to a No. 5 Friend, may want doubles in some of the medium-sized cams.
