The new bolted line--Born to Crimp--means that Turkey Shoot is no longer the leftmost bolted line on the slab in the amphitheater. The current descriptions are misleading because of this change. Yesterday we encountered a party that was about to head up a 5.11 that they thought was an 5.8, with too few draws to finish the line.
