Description

This is the finger/hand crack on the far left side of Turkey Perch. Most of the jams are somewhere between fingers and hands, lots of fingerlock oppurtunity here. Good sustained problem, and a good topout. Too bad there isn't 90 more feet....

Location

On the far left side of Turkey Perch, there is this little boulder problem that is pretty fun. There is a large, east-facing boulder to the left of the problem, creating a little corner. Basically, the first crack when you come down the trail to Turkey Perch.

Protection

A pad would be nice, you could lead it on gear

I did this yesterday, finally with a pad. I tried before but couldn't commit to the top out with a healing ankle. Got it first time yesterday. Not so many jams IMO, there are some but mostly they are awkward and painful. I ended up liebacking a bit of the mid section through the top (until it peters out and you must mantel).

Pretty good. Aug 24, 2008

Finally got the nerve to try this and flashed it. Without a pad, it's very committing. Definite mind game with a slabby, challenging topout. Has perfect (but painful) finger locks. May 31, 2017

We decided to project this on toprope and ended up leading it, too. Fun way to practice finger locks. The book calls it 5.10c. Jul 1, 2018
