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


This is a quality route located on the left side of Turkey Tail, in the same alcove as Turkey's Delight, but on the opposite side.

P1 ascends a fairly sustained hand and fist crack to the top of the dihedral, followed by an interesting and airy traverse right to a large belay ledge (8).

P2 pulls over the roof on initial jugs and then an awkward move or two (8); go up a low fifth-class ramp to the obvious flaring offwidth (9). A #4 Camalot provides reasonably protection - a #5 would be quite solid. The P2 offwidth felt like a Vedauwoo 9 to me.

I give it 3 stars for the splendid South Platte granite, two quality pitches, and great position.


Standard rack up to #4 Camalot size - optional extra #2 and a #5 Camalot.
