Description

Turning Points climbs on more excellent Dumont granite.

Start off a small block adjacent to a small, left-facing dihedral. Diagonal leftward to gain a wide ledge at mid-point. Shake out and and power over two consecutive roof systems. While no move seemed harder than 5.11c, the pump at the end seemed to place it in the 5.11+ range. Turning Point has some really not-to-miss fun climbing.

Location

TP begins 25 feet right of Sweet Petite and behind the tree.

Protection

Eight quickdraws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

If you want to do a series of middle to hard 5.11 climbing in the Mill Creek complex, add this to your list. Pumpy bottom crux. Aug 27, 2016
