Description:

Nice 3-pitch line right of Messner's Delight. Original line starts in a chimney on the left side of Turkey Rock, which is usually used to distinguish the hand crack variation on the right. Pick your start (hand crack is recommended at 5.9) and continue up for 100'. Pitch two starts up thin double cracks in a shoulder width slot, which you take to a pointed flake and move left under a small roof to a 5.6 (spicy for 5.6) face. Belay right of the Messner's bolts (traverse over and TR if so inclined) in a crack at a small stance. P3 follows the crack up and right to a easy face w/ knobs. Pull over an overlap (5.7) and continue to the top.

Another great route. Awesome variation in the crack size. The variation of the first pitch up under the roof is a must!!!! Lots of off-width action, at least for someone with small hands. Scary little twin-crack stem-box on second pitch. Nice little runout on the last pitch on an easy face. WONDERFUL!!! The walk-off is not to climber's left of the climb, it's actually all the way across Turkey Rock to climber's right(it says opposite in one of the guide books)..
