Description Suggest change

This is an awesome mixed line that runs up the center of the Central wall to a natural weakness through the roof above. The first pitch is an easy, 100', sport line that runs to an anchor below the roof. The second pitch passes an ancient set of anchors and ascends the amazing, thin crack through the roof above. A few bolts protect the slab above where a 2-bolt anchor on a ledge awaits. The roof has excellent moves with natural gear, a great line!

NOTE: if you are only leading the first pitch of this route, please respect others that wish to lead on through to the second pitch. Nothing is is more inconsiderate than a party toproping the first pitch of a multi-pitch route if others wish to lead the entire route.

Location Suggest change

Begin the first pitch of Free Fall just left of the iron ladder on the approach to the West Central walls. 2 2-bolt rap anchors gets you down with a single 60m rope.

Per Anona I.: a 60m rope may NOT get you down from the 1st pitch.

Protection Suggest change

1st pitch: 5.7 with 8 bolts to 2-bolt anchor/belay. 2nd pitch: 5.9+. A set of C3 cams and 4 bolts brings you to another 2-bolt anchor on a ledge.
