Description

Crank hard to establish in the crack and climb 70 feet of big #5 and #6 offwidth. The crack tapers to handjams and squeezes through an overhang. Belay above this squeeze and before the hanging, triangular block. Pass the block in a hand and fist crack on the right, neatly step through a bombay chimney above, and crank up to a mantel topout.

Location

Start 10 feet right of the left-facing corner offwidth Sidewinder.

Descend by a lengthy downclimb of the back side of Turkey Tail to the right or two rappels from bolts on the front side, also to the right.

Protection

At least doubles to a #6 C4. An extra #5 might be nice but is not necessary.

If anyone comes across an anchor built out of Wild Country Superlight Rocks, I haven't been able to get back down to retrieve it. You can keep the Camp carabiners (they're new, hardly used) and cordage (also new, hardly used), but it'd be cool if you could send me the stoppers. DM me if you're willing. Hopefully I'll beat you to them though. (Also not sure if this is the right spot to post this, but I don't use this site much as a social media. Just to scope routes.) Feb 27, 2018
