Kevin pulling over the roof on Muricuh.

Falcon Closures MORE INFO >>>


God Bless 'Muricuh. The name was inspired by a truly 'murican conversation I heard at a donut shop the morning of the FA.

Climb sidepulls and jugs to a roof, then levitate to the anchor.


This is the rightmost of the 12s, near where the trail meets the cliff.


7 bolts.

Kneepad would be nice. You'd get no hander before the crux. Fun route overall!

It felt committing clipping the bolt above the roof. You are on relatively insecure underclings reaching far back to your left, and you'd be close to, if not on the deck if you blew it. Just something to be aware of I suppose....

Spent some time hanging at the lip of the roof trying different things and wondering if any of the holds broke off.

One heck of a climb. Don't underestimate just getting to the roof. I believe a key flake at the roof broke earlier this year, so this is a hard 12, with a now extra-large reach around the roof. Still awesome though!

It didn't appear as if anything had broken yesterday. The trick is to get your right hand in the leftmost undercling under the roof. This allows you to make a big left-hand reach to the small crimp which you can then bump your left again to the better hold. From there, it's just a big move to the jug. Granted if your under 5'8"(?) this probably won't work.
