Below crux section...


This route and Quest for Fire are located right below Tribal Boundaries down the trail about 100ft. Both routes head through brown pocketed patina and share anchors.

Start just to the left of Quest for Fire. The first bolt is a ways up there, and there is a runout to the second bolt. The crux is in the brown face above is well protected. It follows a thin crack system. Finish on a white slab to anchors on the right.

The first bolt is right at the big initial Hueco, or at least it is now. Maybe it is a retro? Regardless, it is an "every-day use" route at present and not the least runout. I guess maybe 5.9 to clip the first bolt and with your heals only about a bodylength off the rock.
There are 2 ways to do the eld of the steep section, left or right. Pay now or pay later. Neither is easy.

Super cool route with a fun start in the hueco then up the amazing red stone. There is definitely nothing rated R about this route, protection bolts are just fine. Would be four stars if it weren't for the break in climbing after the initial moves out of the hueco, but the moves in the upper section are rad with an insecure crux sequence. Certainly worth a go!

"R" rating? Huh? It is a sport climb with plenty of bolts. Great climb with standard sport bolt protection and nothing R about it. I suspect an "R" rating will scare people off but no need for that here.
