Description 

Starts with a bouldery move on so-so rock to gain the nice dihedral. Jam & stem the dihedral up beautiful red rock to a section of lighter rock. Belay on the obvious ledge at the base of Turkish Delight.


Location 

Located on the SE face of Supercrack Tower. The route starts on the limestone band at the base of a nice dihedral. To get there, traverse SE from the base of the lower window (5.easy) to the base of the dihedral (#1 camalot helpful for the step up onto the limestone band) and build a belay.


Protection 

Nuts and cams up to a #4 camalot.

Mike, you beat me by a week! I lead it yeterday not realizing it'd been done till I saw a bit of chalk and shoe scuff. I agree 5.9, maybe 9+ ...or I'm just out of shape...Turkish Delight sure made me feel like it this time!

While the initial rock quality is not great the top half the route is stellar desert varnished sandstone. I used nuts and cams to a #3camalot.

I really like this route. Lead it, but hung, a bit out of shape. Great crack climb amidst beautiful scenery. 5.9, though for me I found the 1st half to be tricky-outta shapeness could be a factor so I'll leave the thought for rating at 5.9.
