Turkey Monster
Leading pitch 1 of Dod Route on Turkey Monster. We combined P1 and P2 into one long (horrendous rope drag) pitch. Shirley's visible at the base belaying me (August 2007). EDIT IN: photo taken by our Nikon Coolpix set up on a tri-pod.

So, when can I expect you to put up Needle Rock and Twin Pillars? I went to Needle not long ago and walked around it and found one line but didn't have the cahones. would love to see what you thought of that one sometime.

Needle Rock is on the flank of Dome Rock in the Detroit area. We walked around it and it looked like the obvious line would be up the shaded area on the left in this photo. There are some bolts but didn't see any on that side. I remember telling Karl that we needed someone like you or Mark to pound pitons on this one for us. :-)

Didn't we see some bolts on Twin Pillars that one time? Just needed some hangers I thought?
