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


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.


Singles #0.5 - #5.

Seth Calkins found this route and did the first ascent a few years back. Adam did the first free ascent in late March, 2015. No second ascent yet.

Well I aided that route in the rain, so it was like way more proud.
