Turk's Head follows the southeast facing corner of the Turk's Head formation. Start out with some reachy moves on big ledges. As you climb up the corner, head for the overhang straight above you. When you reach the overhang do the crux move to get around the left side of the roof. Follow the path of least resistance to the top. To get off the tower lower yourself off the west end or downclimb the crack on the south side.
