Description:

Footloose starts on the left edge of a large flake. Climb straight up until you get to a ledge under the large roof at the top. Do a hand traverse under the roof to the end of the large ledge. You will be right under a "v" shaped crack in the roof. Undercling a small fracture half-way out the left side of the "v", palm the rounded lip, then heel-hook and belly flop your way up. Strenuous. The right-hand variation to FootLoose (5.11+) requires pinching a medium-width roof. flake. Since the lip broke, the topout has gotten easier.

4 out of 5 stars Footloose

I'm not quite sure that this is a 5.11 route. Maybe if you tried to top out it would be at that rating. Try not to swing into the trees!
