The Talon Roof

5.12+, Trad, 50 ft (15 m),  Avg: 4 from 1 vote
FA: Seth Calkins. FFA: A. Ferro
Colorado > Gunnison > Taylor Canyon > Rosy Lane

Description

The Talon Roof is a fairly brutal and awkward Taylor Canyon gem. Climb a corner to an over-horizontal roof crack.

Location

Hike past Rosy Lane Buttress for 5-10 minutes. This route sits about 100 feet up the hillside. The roof is really obvious from the trail, so just keep your eyes open and you'll find it.

Protection

Singles #0.5 - #5.
