Final pitch of Astro TurK attempt 7-28-17.  I missed getting on Green Slime, then leading Question of Balance, and then finishing on Weissner Face for the Astro Turk ascent (all the hardest lead option along Turk's Head Ridge).  The final pitch I choose for this attempt is the cool over-hanging off-with crack over to the right and a bit above of Green Slime route.  It felt 5.8+ on the onsight ground up.  My left foot slipped on the crux and I took a fun little 10 foot lead fall.
