P1-Starts beneath a big flake (one bolt). Climb over the flake to ledge. Bolts start again at the end of the ledge. Cool moves up to a chain anchor.

P2-Climb over the mini roof and up to another chain anchor. Two raps from here, or do the route in one pitch and walk off!


Second to last route on the left side of Turkey Rock.


Bolts, two chain anchors.

This is a beautiful pitch that can be done in one nice long run or broken into two shorter pitches. The rock is perfect granite and gneiss, some smearing, some edging and some really big holds make for a fun 150+ feet of climbing.

Two single rope raps get you to the ground, big fat chain at the anchors.

The crux is getting off the ground. The rest is 5.8, with the top moves at 5.9. 3.5 stars.
