Description

This is a terrific Turkey Tail route. From the trail, you'll see a beautiful hand crack perhaps forty feet above you. That's your start. To the left is an OW that gets progressively bigger. To your right, splitting the slab, is a crack that opens and closes and looks nasty (it's Termination, 5.8, and after the start it's very good).

Another approach: look up and locate the slings.

From the trail, scramble up to the base of the climb. Climb about 50 feet of hand crack to a ledge, then another shorter crack section to an easy face, which leads to the anchor.

This is a well-protected, beautiful line.

Location

Per Johanna Protheroe: it is located on the north side of Turkey Tail. 

Protection

#0.75 to #3.5 Camalots; medium and big stoppers; a few bigger hexes. You can bring doubles in hand-size pieces to sew it up. There is webbing and quicklinks for rapping. We had a 60 meter rope.
