Adam starts up Fire and Brimstone
Good holds lead to a crimpy crux about mid way up. After this you get a decent rest and power past a big sloper to the top. Really fun climbing on great holds!!
From where the approach trail meets the crag head left. This climb starts in the corner immediately left of Breakfast Burrito.

One of the best of the grade in the RRG. Nice long route with great moves the whole way.

Well a Local just told me this may be the hardest ten in the gorge and those crimps at the 5th bolt leave something to be desired when trying to clip with an ankle buster waiting for you when you blow. Over all amazing climb every move is a ten move but it ain't a gimmie for a 10 or 11 a/b climber.

A great route, but I agree with Eckhard- watch the 5th clip, its sketchy and probably the crux with fairly high consequences.
Someone mentioned that those holds near that bolt used to be bigger, but had broken over time. If this route gets rebolted anytime soon, that bolt should be lowered about a foot to facilitate clipping. This might require a new bolt, or possibly adjustment of the next couple, but its only a matter of time until that climb claims someones ankles.

Found it slightly pumpy through the upper mid section, but some good rests allow the majority to go pretty smooth. Some awkward movements, but fun through and through. A second to Breakfast Burrito if you ask me.

As of Oct 19, 2012, the anchors are not equalized; the left and higher quicklink takes all the load and is showing significant wear. Replacing this link with three new quicklinks in a chain should provide an equalized anchor. I have also reported this situation at redriverclimbing.com
