A very tricky and crimpy start thru a pumpy overhanging section which then heads slightly left on the steep face above. Crux is down low.
(This route was bolted on Thanksgiving Day, 2000, and the name originated from the whole cooking the turkey idea. I didn't get the First Ascent until Spring 2001 after quite a few tries, so the name kinda took on a slightly different meaning.)


One route to the right of Falcor, starting at the base of the overhang just to the left of the South East corner.
Lower off anchors, or hike off/downclimb the North side.


6 bolts to bolted anchors.
