Seasonal Falcon Closure MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Climb the detached blocks on their right side to a small right-facing roof. Move past the bulge on the right side and climb to the top. Beware: the pins are old and somewhat junky.


Location 

Below a left-leaning ramp, left of Never Never Land and right of Cakewalk.

Rappel from the Never Never Land anchors.


Protection 

Small rack since most the upper sections including the crux are protected with pins.

Direct Start: Climb the center of the huge triangle flake, then join route at the top. Note: gear is limited. Dicey 5.9, but makes for a nice sustained 5.9 overall.

Ouch, my first fall on direct variation. It is pg-13.

Did the right side variation. Not sure if this is a 5.9, it's considerable easier than other 5.8s I've been on. Just make sure you move right instead of move left under the overhang. Once you get above the overhang onto the face, start traverse to the right towards Never Never Land's bolt anchor.

Direct start is fun climbing, but definitely very heady lead. I think an RP helped the situation....at least psychologically.

Yeah if you do the direct variation it's 5.9 PG. I have small stuff and fiddled around for a while but it was still a little sparse. It's balancy, think Three Doves.

Direct start definitely makes this a more sustained climb and it's actually good thin climbing for the first 50 feet. Our leader managed to find okay gear (think small nuts). The roof is a typical Gunks grunt.
