Description

Brown Sugar is located on the Rightovers. To get to the Rightovers, head east from Turkey Tail. Drop some elevation to go along the base of the next cliff band. Brown Sugar is left of the Left Y Crack. Just look for the beautiful and steep finger crack bisecting the face above. From a reasonable stance, get good gear in the finger crack and go for it. Setting an anchor on top is not too difficult. The route can be top roped with a 200' rope easily. Walk off to the west to get back down. Enjoy.

Protection

You won't need as much big gear on this finger crack as on other Turkey Rocks classics.

For much of the route, the finger crack is inset within a hand crack so a) taping up is recommended, and b) some larger gear is nice to have (I think I placed 2 #2s and a #3 in the "finger crack" section after some shenanigining to get said gear). Oct 2, 2017
