Great beginning moves on nubbins and knobs, transferring to some sidepulls and and balancy crimping. Crux comes just below the anchors if you are going for the anchors shared with Ring of Fire, crux is just after the 2nd bolt if you go up left of the arete by Dancer. This route lies just right of Jete and Dancer, just left of Ring of Fire. Fun route. Be wary, there was a rattlesnake in the large crack on the left hand side of the route when I climbed it today. It should be noted that a letter grade is added if you go for the Ring of Fire anchors.

Was fun and fairly well sustained with the occasional rest stop peppered in. Knowing the sequence helps quite a bit - try to move straight up when possible instead of following the line of chalked holds to the right at the first crux.

Two potential anchors exist for this route - the one that is shared with Ring of Fire (route to the right) or the one that is a couple of dozen feet above this anchor which can be reached after transitioning onto the slab by moving up and left onto / over the arete. Note - this second set of anchors is just right of the anchors for Dancer.

Much as I hate regurgitating info from the guidebook, A. Watts notes that going for the Ring of Fire anchors raises the grade by one letter, so be aware if you plan on heading that direction.

Fun route with cool moves and great holds. Maybe a little spicy getting to that second bolt? Groundfall?
