DescriptionP1. The route starts at a big boulder, right off the trail. Scramble up the boulder and climb straight up to the first pin (15' off the ground). It is unprotected to this point. there is another pin three feet above the first. Climb up the white colored rock over a bulge. After the bulge, about 30', you will come to a two bolt anchor on a sloping ledge. Traverse right from here about 40' to fixed anchor.
P2. Climb up 200' placing gear as needed. You pass a two bolt anchor at 130'. Continue climbing the rest of the way. You can walk off or you can scramble down to the left to a chain anchor.
Two single rope rappels to the bottom of Smoked Turkey (highly recommended if you can lead 5.10).
