Access Issue: NOTE: Access only from Turkey Rocks Trailhead. Details

Description

Note: The GPS coordinates for this location as shown on the map will take you to the trailhead not the location of the main crag. To access the main crag, utilize the Approach to Turkey Rocks.

With superb rock quality and interesting, varied, one pitch routes of moderate grades, it's easy to see why this area is so popular. It is also a popular top roping and warmup area.

Steppenwolf is the crag's classic offwidth with a hidden hold and an interesting crack to face climbing finish.

Getting There

Once you get to the saddle between Turkey Rocks and Turkey Tail, turn left, and follow the trail to this area.

For accurate directions to the approach to Turkey Rock, search for Turkey Rocks Trailhead. Do not park in or approach the crags from Turkey Rock Ranch Estates. There is no public parking and the locals do not take this well.
