This route is an obtuse flake/dihedral on the slab to the right of Turkey Crossing. Follow the crack to anchors hidden on the ledge.

The pro is adequate, but you have to have some experience placing gear to get good placements. Mostly smaller stuff, from finger size to #0.75 Camalot size.

Bolt anchors on the ledge.
