The Eastern Front is two climbs right of Straw Turkey on the sunny side of Turkey Rock. Start in a right-facing corner, climb to a large roof, then step left to a chimney with good hand jams and climb to the ledge shared by The Fiend.


Standard rack to 4". 1 old ring angle piton exists on the route. Fixed anchor. A 70m rope will reach.

Climbed this and The Fiend yesterday. They are both very good, but this route is much more difficult and sustained than The Fiend. I would call it solid 5.9. We started in the corner and climbed out left from under the roof and were very pleased with the quality. But there are challenges all the way up, as opposed to The Fiend where you get past the roof and are cruising. Both are very good and worth a run, especially if you come down the trail and find a busy crag.

60m rope just makes it to the ground. I would start the climb on the handcrack on the face just to the left of the corner - you can still make it to the roof traverse if you start it on the face. Makes a more sustained aesthetic line.
