Description

  • Continuous climbing with big reaches, right on the arete, crimpy.
  • Climbs steeper than it looks because of the right wall overhanging.
  • Stays cool, north facing and a breeze coming through the corridor.
  • If you can climb the grade you should definitely take the time to do this route it does not get anywhere near the attention it deserves.

Location

This is the steep arete left of Quivering Quill, left arete on the North-facing block at the west end of Turkey Tail.

Protection

7 bolts to a bolted anchor.

So, when do the Colo Spgs locals chop it? Sep 15, 2008

This route has been around for quite some time, Idid it 10 years ago and it was up well before that, so I would assume that it was put up in an accepted style and it will stay. Sep 16, 2008

I put this route up around 1992 with Kevin McLaughlin, Mark Milligan and Wayne Smith. It was drilled on the lead from sketchy hook placements. The route took quite a bit of effort for me and is still one of my favorite FAs that I have done. Jan 28, 2009

One of my favorite sport climbs in the Platte for sure.
Thanks for the work. Feb 25, 2009
