|Campfire Crag - South Face
Begin just left of the Fetus and make a step-across move/dyno to gain a ledge with the hands. (This maneuver will be more difficult the shorter you are) Hand traverse left, then power over a bulge (10c, height dependent) on knobs. The middle section has some enjoyable steep face climbing, with a 10c slab move above the fourth bolt.
5 bolts, 2-bolt belay/rap anchor.

Starts with a reach to a high starting hold and then another reach to a ledge - there was no need to stem on this at the start unlike it's neighbor just to the right.
The crux past the 2nd bolt (pulling on sharp, grainy crimps, not knobs, over a bulge) is a bit unpleasant, but fortunately the climbing above is much better and the sequence past the 4th bolt is particularly engaging as well as easier than the lower crux. Two stars out of five.

Fun climb. I found the crux (near the bottom) to be short and uneventful, but the upper part had some cool movement. I thought the route was easier than proposed, but that may be because the crux involved more pulling and less footwork (the latter of which I have none).

I couldn't pull the move past the bulge (crux). Small crimps and a high step right foot shut me down... ugh.
