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!

4 out of 5 stars p2 is the best

P1, easy good gear
P2 eats nuts, it's the best pitch on the route
p3 has a spicy traverse, protected by bolts.

Great climb.

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.
