Routes in The Turret

East Face of the Turret T 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a

Description

The Turret is less of a spire and more of a wall crowned with a jumbled mess of small pinnacles. Although its summit is not the highest of the Little Slide Spires, the Turret is the tallest from bottom to top - offering the longest routes.

It was first climbed by Joe Kiskis in 1970 by a mostly 3rd-4th class route on it's south-west side. The only other route listed in Secor's High Sierra guide is the East Face (III, 5.9).

Getting There

A short scramble up talus leads to the base of the formation.
