Patrick on his 1st lead of Turn Your Head and Coug...


Start in the wide crack, climbing it to a threadable hole. From there, 5-10 feet of low-angled climbing takes you to the beautiful pocketed face and plenty of awesome moves. Great rock.


Near the middle of the Pontoon Wall, left of the right cave/roof system. Also left of the small cave 1/3 way up, which is Inner Pigeon. Starts in a wide crack leading to a threadble hole.


Bolts, a couple slings, 2-bolt anchor. Rap or lower.

No need for slings or cam here. I added two bolts to the start 3/2012 13 years after my FA. I decided it made a better sport route than one piece mixed route.
