An off to the side gem! Mantle on a large flake to a face crimp or two and balance to the nice horizontal under roof. Plug gear and enjoy the ride to the top.

Location

East face of Turks Tooth, found to the right of Wiessner's Face.

Protection

Trad, very nice Tri-Cams on this one.

Spied this line the other day. How's the pro? The move over the roof into the dihedral looks great! Jun 9, 2011

Getting down off the Turk's Tooth is kind of a pain if I remember. I didn't mind it but I remember it's a tricky downclimb. Oct 1, 2010

TR'd this route years ago. Short climb but it is a GEM. Just another great overlooked route at DL. Sep 30, 2010
