Pete starting up Fire Water
On the far right side of the wall is a buttress around a corner with a good ledge. A few good moderate sport routes climb this small buttress. The lefthand of the two is a steep but juggy 5.7 with an overhang guarding the chains. Very good route.
Draws. Rap hangers at the top.
Pete in the thick of it.
Clipping the chains. Ruth Lake is pretty.

This would be a great first lead for someone, a real confidence builder. The 5.7 rating seems a bit dubious, because the route is like climbing a ladder. Very straightforward, only one move at the finish would give a first time climber any trouble.

Is this a good climb for beginner Top ropers? if so how does a novice get to the top? Can you hike up the back? How tall is the wall?

I thought this was as challenging as the Sun Dog route next to it with a 5.8 rating.

I thought this was harder than the 5.8 to the right, Sun Dog. I'd say it's a 5.9-. I am wondering if a couple of holds have broken off since 2004, because it's pretty steep and there are some crimpy holds. Figuring out the moves at the top is pretty fun. I lunged for a large right handed jug down and right from the bolts and that made it easy to get to the anchors.
