Description 

Turkey Rock sits high upon the hill on the West side of the Upper Boulderfield area; up and left of the Boulderfield parking lot. The climbing faces South and West. Largest formation in the area. It kind of resembles a turkey.

Getting There 

From the Western most parking area for Upper Boulderfield, head up the talus into a notch betweeen Pitbull & Upper Pitbull cliffs. A well worn trail leads to the base of Turkey Rock. 15 - 20 minutes.
