The Upper Crag of Medusa is subject to the Seasonal Cliff-chicken closure, apparently as part of the Sphinx closure(?). Details
Although not formally named and closed, a closure sign now rests in the notch between upper and lower Medusa. Lower Medusa lies below this closure. The dates are as per the Falcon Closure
DescriptionTurn to Stone is a moderate climb with a few bulges for cruxes. Good protection is available most of the way if it is sought out by a skilled leader.
This climb goes up and right diagonally through a crack system to the top of the rock on the South side of upper Medusa (see the attached photo).
To descend, continue to the summit and off the back (scramble, or do a second pitch).
