Description

Located on the north side of the Turkey Tail, Termination is described by the Cheney guide as a hand and fist crack. Looking up at it might bring other thought to mind as well!

It starts out looking wide and nasty. Don't let it fool you though, because its bite is not as bad as its bark.... Squeeze, thrash, and wriggle your way though the opening moves and then enjoy a much nicer crack that goes up to a point that shares the same anchors as Eclipse. We climbed the route using a 70 meter rope, but I think you can lower off with a 60 meter rope just fine.

Locating the route might be a little tricky. A lot of the lines on the north face of Turkey Tail are mixed up and unobvious looking. Walk around a little and study the guidebook if you have one. Maybe ignoring if you have one is not a bad suggestion either. Let your mind expand and Eclipse should be one of the first logical looking climbs you might try, especially if you are coming from the direction of the "Perch." Termination is just to the right of and shares the same slings as Eclipse. The ledge you start from is not the most obvious thing to get to. You can crank some nice moves through a wide section to reach the starting ledge, or scramble up from well to the right of the start for both routes. If you are like me, this will become clear after you have cranked the moves on the left side of the ledge, eh? Termination is a good climb to combine with Eclipse while you are hanging out on this neat ledge. Enjoy.

60m cord is fine. Jun 1, 2010
The Trout guide to the area is equally bad for finding this thing. Very worthwhile!! Jun 22, 2008
