Friendly Fire; triple the roof pullin' fun

Description 

Located on the far right side of The Columns between Ashes To Ashes (5.11d) and Easy Rider (5.11c). The start of this route (first two bolts) is shared with Holy Smoke (5.11c) which then cuts up and left.

Climb past the shared start with Holy Smoke (5.11c) and continue up the long face on endless flat-topped edges to anchors just below the very top of the crag. Sustained climbing on positive holds with no stopper moves; this is very reminiscent of the climbing at the Owens River Gorge.

Protection 

12 bolts, anchors

Another Graham classic. Not as steep as those to its left, but great nonetheless.
