Lake of Fire is a direct start that adds difficulty, quality and a bit of runout into Sixty-nine. Start by climbing Leviticus and traverse right into the base of a flare with a sawed of tree stump. Climb up into the flare where you can place your last pieces of gear before getting into Sixty-Nine. A Grey Alien and green Camalot work well. Climb up and right into a faint seam with crimps on either side. The last few moves before you can get any protection are runout so make sure you have a good belay (or donít let go). This takes you into the start of the hard climbing on Sixty-Nine.
same as for sixty nine plus a single set of finger and hand size gear
