About Turkey's Foot Cliffs:

Sport and Trad cracks and face climbs
Approach: From the lower parking lot, look for the trail down by the boat ramp and head downriver for about 500 yards. The cliffs will be up and on the left. After the bend in the river, look for a trail on the right heading straight up to the cliffs. Both Dismal and Turkey Foot offer great uptapped potential for routes at all grades and types. Turkey Foot (so named for the petroglyphs found in a rockhouse halfway up the wall) currently has seven routes, trad and sport, from 5.8 to 5.11c. Use the 5.0 approach ramp to access a ledge and three great routes.
