BETA PHOTO: Direct finish in red
This is a direct finish up the obvious shallow streak in the bulge above the P-3 anchors of "Central Pillar...". Originally started but abandoned a few years ago, it was recently revisited and finished. It makes for a more direct and slightly harder finish than that of the original finish of "Wild Turkeys".
Climb the path of least resistance to the first bolt and then move left to the corner. Gear slung long here gets you back right to a line of bolts going through the bulge. The climbing is slightly right of the streak to start and more resembles Sunwall climbing than Laurel. Follow the bolts up to easier terrain that is protected by a small cam. Belay from bolts between the mosspads.
Straight up above the P-3 anchor of Central Pillar Of Laurel.
There are 5 bolts. Finger size cam between bolt 1 and 2, and a small (#00) TCU/C3/Hybrid above the last bolt.
