5 out of 5 stars My first route at turkey

A nice climb. As a turkey rock regular, I didn't like this one as well as some of the others. a few obligatorily painful jams

Onsight Onsight ascent by: angry on 1978-08-28 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars !

Onsighted in Jimmy Dunn's presence after I lied to him by telling him I onsighted it a week earlier. Barely pull it off. Took a year to redpoint it again. Ha.

As of May 2006, there is no 2 bolt anchor. Rather, there is a big cable threaded through a constriction. It's safe but a 2 bolt anchor would be nicer.

One of the best routes at it's grade anywhere.
