Mike P on Toxic Turkey.
This route starts on two large holds about 35 feet from the right side of the Pipe Dream cave proper. Twenty feet of slightly pumpy 5.11 climbing brings you to the base of the massive roof. From here every move is about V3, and the hard part is dealing with the crippling pump that grows with every bolt you pass. If you make it to the lip of the cave, rest up, and endure another 25 feet of 5.11+ endurance climbing.
Unfortunately, due to the nature of the rock, and some aggressive cleaning tactics, this route suffered some major enhancing(drilled pockets), and reinforcing. With that said, the quality of the moves, the position, and Maple's irresistibly fun style still warrant three stars.
About 35 feet left of the right egde of the Pipe Dream, this route is the third line you encounter. All the draws have pink/red runners.
All the draws are fixed. Including the anchors.
A 60 meter rope will get you back to the ground.
Some use a knee pad.
