Without further ado, FrictionLabs presents RoofTown Vol 1 featuring FL Pro Matt Gentile! In the hinterlands of Flagstaff, AZ lie untouched limestone boulders straight out of a climber's day dream. Join Matt as he transforms this dreamscape from imagination into first ascent reality. Follow him through "a day in the life" of exploration and development on some of the best and boldest blocs the Western USA has to offer! A film by Nathaniel Davison in association with ORGANIC Climbing.#chalkmatters #climbyourimpossible frictionlabs.com
