Description 

This 35-ft route ascends the low-angle slab towards the east (left) end of the Campfire Crags and ends on a ledge. This serves as an approach pitch for Bonfire (5.11b). Not really a slab climb, though, as it has dark patina "plates" with super-positive edges. The crux is negotiating the first 10 feet or so before hitting the plates.

Descent Options:
1) downsolo the route
2) downsolo the lower half of Fat Man's Misery (just right), which is also 5.6
3) continue up Bonfire or Datura (5.12R)!


Protection 

Looks like you could slot a stopper or two in-between patina "plates", or perhaps just sling the plates themselves. If leading, be prepared to downsolo!

This is a fun little slab. It's nice if you're stuck in Indian Cove on a hot day, because it's on one of the few north-facing walls around. Another option when you finish is to move right across the ledge and finish up the top half of Fat Man's Misery. Descent from the top of the crag is pretty routine (I don't remember which way I went, but I do remember that it was simple).
