Description Suggest change

This route caught the eye of Jimmy Dunn in 1975. Some say it's one of the hardest offwidths out there. Comparable to some of the most difficult of Vedauwoo's and anything else in the Platte. Some would say the grade might be a sandbag.
Head up into the obvious overhanging roof, and start sorting it out. Rumor has it that there is a micro edge on the face that makes this possible. Stuff yourself in there and at the right moment, pivot out on to that edge and climb for all your worth.
Remember, the first rule of offwidth: don't offwidth.

For Turkeys Only is the route to the left of the classic Drumstick Direct. Here's a link to the photo, it's the route immediately to the left of Pat:

Bring all of your wide gear. A few smaller pieces might come in handy too. Don't forget the barf bag.
