BETA PHOTO: A) The Fortress. B) Turkey Neck Tower.


Turkey Neck is on the east of the alcove up to the right of The Fortress. Climb it from its short side of the tower. There is an attemted line with fixed anchors at the left edge of the spire. Pete Takeda: "It rises out of the hillside like a giant, raspy gizzard with a house-sized capstone overhanging on all sides.

Desent: rap from a single-bolt anchor back to the notch.


From the Garfield parking area hike for about 15 mins east parallelling I.70 pasted a fence line to an open canyon.


Angle pitons (1) each; ice tool (1); hangers 0.5".
