A jaw-dropping line of unparalleled quality and asthetics. Not only is it long, Firefly steepens throughout its entire length.

Climb an interesting slab to vertical rock, eventually climbing an overhanging blunt arete before a final headwall guarding the anchors.

This route is worth every step of the hike.


THE ARETE. The center of the Butterfly wall, start at the open area between the Patio blocks and where the trail goes between small trees and the wall.


16 bolts + anchors

Check out the photo of Vince Bates on Iron Butterfly. The left skyline where it is overhanging is the top of the route.

Aesthetic, exposed, classic! Once this route gets a little more traffic, it will easily merit five stars.
