Topo for unknown 2 and shitfire


This route provides access to one of the rat caves best routes (Shitfire). Begin up a short but powerful overhang using a hidden undercling (crux), then head left across a small channel; roughly 5.11- climbing to the midway anchors.

To do Full Enchilada (5.12b/c extension), once at the chains, traverse left to a draw, and then head straight up to a high clip on an extended draw, then pull a tricky and powerful single move on an almost non-existent hold, and finish out.

Great route with a fun crux sequence, and then jug haul to the anchor.
