Description 

Turkey Hooks is a fun climb up a short, right facing dihedral. Work up the dihedral past three bolts to a small, left angling ramp about 3/4 of the way up. The crux is the transition from the dihedral onto the ramp which requires a couple of thin moves on the face that lead to the ramp. Pass one more bolt en route to the anchors. The anchors are set a little ways back from the top of the route, so it is best to rap the route or use long slings if you want to top rope.

Location 

Turkey Hooks is one of the four routes on the southwest facing wall. It starts off of a large, sloping ledge just to the right of the Central Ramp.

Protection 

Four quickdraws and long slings for the 2-bolt anchor.
