Description

The Turret is a small crag located on top of the fortress and has great views of Skaha Lake and Penticton. Though not very tall, and with just a few climbs, the Turret is home to the excellent traditional climb The Dream, 5.9, and is worth a visit for this alone.

Getting There

Although it's possible to scramble up to the Turret from the right (north) side of Redtail Wall, the best way to access this crag is to climb a route on the Fortress such as Plum Line, Storming the Ramparts, or Et Tu Brutus.
