Description

The Fiend is three climbs right of Straw Turkey on the sunny side of Turkey Rock. It climbs a steep slab with a splitter finger crack leading to a small roof. Crank the roof, continue straight up on easier terrain, and finish up a wide crack in a right-facing corner.

Protection

Standard rack to 4". There is a fixed anchor. A 70m rope will reach.

This is a fun climb with a lot of variety. IMO, this is a great climb for the competent sport climber who is just getting into trad and crack climbing as it requires a bit of crack technique but offers plenty of face climbing options as well.

I left a #11 BD stopper on the climb on 3/26/11. It's about 2/3 of the way up the climb. I discovered that my nut tool was on the ground, and it was getting too late to go back down for it. So, there's bootie to be had or, if you retrieve it and you're into good karma and beer, please send me a PM. Mar 27, 2011

60m rope makes it if you rap from the cables. It is close though May 28, 2011

Really fun climb to follow. Cruxy start to get to roof. Roof was super solid. We finished on the harder crack system leading to the right cable anchor. Jul 2, 2018
