Description [Suggest Change]
Consternation is basically a hand and finger crack. The climb ends where the crack flattens out. It is a one pitch climb but looks like you could continue for a second. We started the climb behind the boulder (came in from the right). Like Left Side of the Key, just as fun as many Perch routes but without the convenience of a walk off (read more adventure).
Location [Suggest Change]
This route is located on the north side of Turkey Tail. Hiking along the north side of the Tail coming from the Perch look for cracks in photo. To descend (option 1) turn left at top of climb, downclimb a hallway (maybe low fifth), now you will be at the starting ledge for Eclipse, Termination, and Live Fire. Go through an opening between boulders and turn left for easiest path. For option 2, rappel from slings at the top of Acoplopse (spelling?) (two cracks to the east).
Protection [Suggest Change]
Standard rack, gear for belay.
