The Turk's Head area includes Turk's Head, Turk's Tooth, Turk's Head Ridge, and the area of jumbled rocks immediately east of Turk's Head. The climbs here are quite good and are much less busy than the Cleo Amphitheater. Turk's Head Ridge is an excellent place to practice your multipitch climbing.
Ascend the West Bluff Trail from the south. When you get to the Cleo Amphitheater continue northeast on an unmarked trail 200 feet. Descend a gully on the northeast side of Turk's Head. Alternatively, you can descend into the Cleo Amphitheater and walk northeast along the base of the rock wall past Wiessner Wall.
