This is the extension to Firearms.

Fantastic new addition to the Ruckman Cave, Long Barrel puts the top of Firearms another ~45 feet higher. Step out left to the anchors of firearms, but don't clip. Instead, step back right and fire away on long, tricky moves through a roof and then collect yourself before finishing off the technical but fun face that follows.

Apparently the FA called this 13a if you stay true to the bolt line. I don't know anything about that variation to this route. I'm giving this addition the grade if you follow the obvious line of holds to the right of the bolt line (12c). It is difficult to clip the last bolt if you climb the right variation, and it may be better to skip it. This runout certainly adds some excitement as if you pump out at the anchors (a definite possibility), you will plummet past the lip of the roof for a nice 30 footer.


Climb Firearms, and keep going up.
