Working across the traverse of Burning, in Hell Ca...

Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


Awesome steep climbing that traverses the cave and ends at the lip of Hell cave. The crux is right after you clip the 5th bolt.


It starts on the far left side of the cave. The unique thing about Burning is that it traverses to the right to end on the very last bolt at the top right side of the cave. It does not pull the roof out of the cave.


Burning is ten bolts long and ends on a single draw which would be consider the 11th bolt. The draws are usually fixed on the route.

FA Todd Skinner, or FA Boone Speed? Anyone have the history on this. I know it says Todd in the AF guide, but asking around the area, people say Boone did it first. Maybe Boone is associated with it because he did FAs of half of everything else, and is climbing it in Masters of Stone?

I hope someone corrects me if I'm wrong, but I remember hearing that Jeff Pedersen opened up the project to the talent that was climbing in AF at the time. I think Todd won the showdown with Boone and Lynn Hill climbing it the same day; Jeff not long after.
