Description:

This is the route that Y's near it's top after a short offwidth section. It is left of the corner/flake system by the obvious prow. Follow the ramp to a short band of less than stellar rock. Fight your way up and through the offwidth to where the crack diverges. This is called 5.10b in the Hubbel guide but 5.9 in the Turkey's Only one and called Bush Crack, probably because of the annoying bush. I'd go with the Hubbel description.

2 out of 5 stars This is Turkey?

Not your usual Turkey Rocks fair. The climbing would be better if it got more traffic. The slight choss leading up to the business is annoying. The climbing is physical and the bush detracts from the crux as you try to avoid getting pushed off moving past it. Felt harder than Rasmussen's, but barely and this climb is not a style I particularly like.
