Another totally over looked and over due problem! I've been looking at it for years and just got around to cleaning it today. It climbs every bit as well as i thought it would.

It's a 20ft traverse to a top out but it makes upward progress with the slope of hill it's on so you are moving upward which feels nice. A steep wall with good feet (rare for Pway) and a mix of jugs and crimps with a sloper thrown in for spice.

Start on the nice ledge jug down and right under the overhanging wall. Climb a couple moves in the crack to get established on a good 2 hand jug. head left on smaller holds leading to a cruxy traverse through crimps on the steep face. These crimps lead you to a huge jug at the lip where you can catch a shake before the top out. The top out isn't hard on it's own but it seems hard when you are tired. enjoy...

Full name: The Turkey Vulture Traverse (incase you were wondering)


from the base of the dome, walk around left following the trail toward the top. The TVT is on your right just as you start up the hill.


pads, have someone move em along with you.
