Seasonal Falcon Closure MORE INFO >>>


Look for the right facing corner in the dark rock. This climb often seeps. Pull out of the steep section low and cruise up the groove until you can reach the slab near the top. Traverse up and right to the anchors on Airlie Gardens.

Watch for dirty and loose rock. Be sure your placements are in solid rock as well.


Third route from the left on the upper tier. Look for the broken corner system. A 60m will get you down.


Single rack to #1, tricams (or double medium sized gear), long runners. Same two bolt anchor as Airlie Gardens. Inspect anchor, update or replace if needed.
