Comments: Just got back from Turkey Rocks - great place. As for the road: we made it all the way to the main parking area in a Honda Odyssey just fine. A little bumpy and sometimes a bit sketchy, but if you look around, there's a way to make it through everything with no problems. If it's wet though, don't expect to make it.

Comments: This route is scary. No questions. Second to third bolt is super run out. Really fun, but be sure you can climb 5.9 until the top. (I only climbed the first pitch.)

But that's not the scary part. I climbed this route today and could not for the life of me find the two anchors at the top. I ended up traversing right to the next route and rapping off a single bolt (which was bomber, but one bolt is never recommended). Sketchy. Would've been fun if it was more protected.
