BETA PHOTO: South Face of Turkey Tower

Description 

From Eric Bjornstad's 1997 Desert Rock:
[P0: Climb a 50' 5.6 pitch to gain access to the top of the pedestal.]
P1: Climb a splitter crack up the center of the south face.
P2: Continue up and left through a rotten chimney to better rock, with face climbing to the summit.

Location and Descent 

The route is the obvious crack line with anchors splitting the south face.

Descent:
Traverse to the higher north summit to find the rap anchors at the top of Swiss Gentleman. Do one 100' rap to the first set of anchors and a ledge. Rap 150' to the ground.

Protection 

3 sets of friends #1-#3.5; Camalots #4 or #5 for pitch 2 and bottom of pitch 1.
