A short, bouldery sport line. Scramble up to the starting ledge, then launch into sequential climbing on incut edges up the overhanging face to a good jug at the 3rd bolt. Finish on more moderate and less overhanging terrain.

Still a bit dirty, but has fun moves.


Locate the obvious left-leaning ramp of Tradmill. Brushfire Fairytales is the bolted line immediately to the left.


4 bolts to anchors.
3rd bolt is a touch high, and reaching the clipping jug is probably the single hardest move, so have an attentive belayer to keep you off the small ledge down low.

As of Oct 2012, this route is the third climb to the right of Heard It On NPR. Yes, a bit of a one-move wonder but it does have good movement till the 4th bolt.
