Description:

Dream of Wild Turkeys is a fine route, sustained at the grade, and one of those routes that has excellent climbing the entire way up. If you rap after the 7th pitch, you're missing out on 3 more outstanding pitches of climbing and the summit. The ASCA recently replaced all the bolts on this climb (except the bolts on the last pitch before Turkeyland. The final rappel station at Turkeyland is 'okay', but if you've gone this far, you might as well top out. One word of caution- it may be prudent to swing over to PoD on the raps, as there are no less than 4 stuck ropes in the crack on the crux pitch. This route is high quality and well protected, well worth doing!

5 out of 5 stars quality climb

Wonderful climb. Bailed on Rock Warrior after the first pitch, then came and got the "consolation prize." Still, it was fun climbing the whole way, if not as mentally challenging.

5 out of 5 stars Wow!

Great climb. Was happy we split the crux pitch into two pitches. Otherwise the crux of the route would've been so far out.

Loved the cracks!

Oh... something interesting happened to us on the climb... These dudes knocked over Victor when he was belaying me on the first part of the crux pitch. It nearly pulled me off. Seriously. If you fall at a belay ledge, who would grab onto the lead belayer? Who does that????

5 out of 5 stars Superb!

We did 11 pitches to Turkeyland(Turkey Ledge). The 11th pitch is not in some of the guideboooks--goes at 5.8 and finishes at a rap station situated next to one of Jorge Urioste's original, homemade bolts. You will be rewarded with fantastic views of the walls towering around and behind you. I led evens.
