Access Issue: NOTE: Access only from Turkey Rocks Trailhead. Details
No access from the Turkey Rock Ranch Estates neighborhood.
This route is located on Turkey Tail. It starts behind a large pine tree, about 40' right of Whimsical Dreams. The first crux involves a short, but very burly lieback about 15'off the ground with slippery footholds. Make sure you place good gear. Above that, easy finger locks reach a sloping ledge. From here, I highly recommend the bolted arete, 4 bolts lead you through typical arete moves. Resist the temptation to dive back into the crack when the arete hits the roof. Stay on the face until you can reach a good hand jam formed by a chockstone. One hand-sized piece gets you to the anchors, where you can rap 70' to the ground. The 2 star rating applies to the arete, the crack section is nothing to write home about, and I thought it felt much harder than the 11a rating the guidebook gives it.
