A three pitch variation/alternat start to Dream of Wild Turkeys. Start 20 meters downhill from POD/DWT start at the base of a polished slab beneath a line of bolts. Follow bolts up left then back right accross flakes to a bolted belay. @nd pitch: Up right into a hand crack which is follwed past a bolt into a chimney (weird move!). Up the chimney and crack to another bolted belay. 3rd pitch. Exquisite face climbing past sparsely spaced bolts up a steep varnished face to the 3rd bolt belay on Wild Turkeys. Finish Turkeys or rappel twice with two 60m ropes.

5 out of 5 stars Led p1 & 3

Led p1 & 3. The crux pitch is more cerebral than it is difficult. Bring gear.
