Comments: PG13 could have been for the hanging tree that was above the route.. which is there no more, last I heard.

Comments: Impressive work on the FFA, Eric! Wish I could have seen it go down!

I originally thought this battle would graze 5.12 if not for a few thank-God jugs at its steepest part. Desperate chicken-wings, brutal rattly fist stacks, and crafty leg work will see you through. The protection bolt is convenient at the crux to keep the rope out of your way as you take the tipped #6 for a walk.

Add this one to the local o-dubya circuit!

Comments: Charlie, typically they are not. I can think of about a half-dozen total at Turkey Rocks. Count on building your own belay anchors and walk-of descents! Enjoy this special place.

Comments: I remember having a long sling on crux of B&T, as I did not do the moves using the second left side-pull. At one point, my draws were on both of these routes but must have vanished over the years.

Chris, a few long draws at choice spots on DS will help with some tough or early clips and also with rope drag when running the pitch in its entirety.

Comments: Wow. Thanks for all the feedback! Engagement is very different from a route like Arch Enemy for many reasons, and would be more comparable to routes such as Coyote Tower or Earth Angel, also not everyone's cup of tea.

Comments: Glad to hear it has cleaned up, Chris! This was not the case 5 years ago. How would you compare the difficulties to its neighbor to the left?

Comments: Great warm up and fun hand and fist jams with good feet holds every now and then. Belay takes a few bomber small stoppers on a ramp ledge.

Comments: I had a couple of C4 #4s and would have used a 5. Great climbing and color. I. Also used the flake at the top and had some nice movent and smaller gear in case you ran out of big cams

Comments: there was only a single quicklink on each of the anchor bolts. Either someone took the lower-off biners or doesn't mind twisted ropes. I added a dinky rap ring to each though those probably won't last long.
