BETA PHOTO: The route.

Description 

This route is pretty fun if you are not trying to have a serious day of climbing or want to have a good first lead climb. There are a series of cracks that range from fingers to hands depending on which crack you take. The adjacent wall and corner provide plenty of opportunities to stem. I started on the left crack and finished on the right.

There are two "variations", like I said this is probably the most laid back route in Turkey Rock. If it was longer, it would be a four star route, ha.

Location 

This very short route is to the climbers left of Dash and Thrangle. From the top of Dash and Thrangle, you can set up a TR on the multi-sling rap anchor. Please be courteous of other climbers though, because this rap anchor is shared with Dash and Thrangle and the first pitch of Gobble Grunt. This route can basically be climbed as long as there are no other parties rappelling.

Protection 

A 0.4, 0.75, and #2 (one of each) is really all you need - if that. There are good places for nuts, too.

As you can tell in the photo, I sewed it up primarily for the fun of it.

Well, for 5 bucks you would think we could at least get a route description?

This is the downclimb from the top of the first pitch of Gobbler's Grunt (as well as the Gobblers Grunt Direct Start, and Dash & Thrangle). Not a FA...solo downclimbed by multitudes since 1976....

Yeah, this short pitch has been climbed since at least 1971 to access the ledge above to climb Gobbler's Grunt and Reinhold Messner's Delight.
