FA of roof extension

Seasonal Falcon Closure MORE INFO >>>


Climb past 4? bolts to a short runout on easier terrain to a spot with gear and then head to 2 bolt anchor 60 feet up.

Extension: 5.11b PG13 (FA: A. McDowell et al.) Climb the easy right facing corner to clip a bolt in the roof (75mm triplex), step down a couple feet and pull onto the face to the left and continue on slightly runout yet pumpy terrain to a 1 bolt + 1 fixed nut lower off anchor (90 feet lower off to ground). You could also potentially pull the roof direct at the bolt for a harder variation.


20 feet right of pussy footing


bring a medium size cam (.75 or #1 camalot, I forget, for after the last bolt). For the extension, bring a small selection of cams for up to the bolt in the roof
