Yea Babay this is what Cody is all about !!


A fun day out in the Southfork, with mostly an easy approach, in the sun, and great climbing make this a must do.


From the parking lot hike past the ranch and head down to the river, hug the right hand side of the river staying hikers right either on the river or following game path's on the hill side.
You will notice two drainages coming down the hillside almost all the way to the river, head up the right hand one.


Screws, V-Thread Material Extra Slings. There are trees to rap from but always a good idea to bring new "leave behind" webbing.

The lower and most of the pitches are in the sun so be there on a cooler day. After the initial first two pitches of fun WI3 you hike further up the drainage to the Awesome Drumstick.

A little more info on which drainage...JoJo's book decribes the cliff band to pass on the creek and then angle up. The cliff band is real obvious. If you start a steep ascent after the cliff bands, you will see a drainage on your right and footprints from other lost souls going to the drainage above the cliff bands...this is the wrong one. Take a slightly lower angle approach after the cliff band to the drainage at your 11 O'clock. Once in the drainage properly about 200 meters up and left from Cabin Creek past the cliff bands, go up the drainage and stay right in the drainage and about another 500 meters you will all of sudden see the first pitch of Smoked Turkey. All in all, done corectly a 45 minute approach from the car. Done my original way...a 2 hour approach of zig zagging and double guessing which drainage.
