Description 

The Happy Turk Hoodoo is a crazy looking, 40-or-so-foot-high tower of Cutler sandstone. It is also called the Devil's Golfball, because the base of the tower looks like a red golf tee, while the capstone is a whitish orb looking somewhat like a golfball.


Getting There 

From the cattleguard, drive 5.7 miles (2.1 miles past the Ice Cream Parlor. Just off the road on your right will be the tower Pensive Putterman, composed of Cutler, and several hundred feet to the left will be the Happy Turk. Follow the maze of dirt roads to park at the base of the tower, or hoof it in for the 2 minute hike.

I'm not sure of the direction (ie east, south) the route faces, only that it faces away from the road. So when you see it from the road driving in, the route is on the backside. It gets morning sun, so you don't have to wait in the winter to get on it.The route is basically a bolt-ladder of six bolts, with a couple 5.8 moves required to reach the first bolt, and to move from the last bolt to the summit. It's very easy, and the bolts are solid. When we did it, we actually drove the truck righ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
