This is a fun route on super rock. Many options exist to the right of the big cave. All seem to be in the 5.6 range but may require you to build your own belay. This is the standard option, which is equipped with bolted anchors at ever pitch. The second and third pitches are shared by The Nose.

P1 - Head up the ledges and cracks to the belay on a large ledge. 60 feet.

P2 - Climb up the crack 130 feet to a belay.

P3 - Run it out to the top on easy terrain (5.4 or less?) There is a tree 35 feet up from the belay which can be slung, but that's about it.


Start at the highly featured, black rock just right of the deep cave to the right of the center routes.


A standard rack.

Best descent? Rap or walk off?

I always prefer to walk off of Turkey Rock. Once you summit, it's easy to find the way down by walking back (north) and then left (west) from the top.

Alternately, it's also an easy 2x rappel by walking west to the anchors of Smoked Turkey. 2 raps on a doubled 60-m rope will get you down.
