Another route that takes some balance, pondering, and praying. Climb the slab left of "Burning" up to the high first bolt, then use sidepulls with decent feet up the face to the 2nd. Again, don't deck clipping this bolt. Not as desperate as "Burning" here if your feet are in the right spots. Carefully dance up some more fun face/slab moves to a ledge. Now to tackle the crux roof. The bolt above the roof is a bit out of reach for the average climber from the ledge, so undercling the roof and step high to clip, then back down to rest again. Just above the roof is a bomber left-angling finger crack. Snag that and fight your way up using air for feet and the forest of limestone crystals(some better than others) for additional crimps. Once you've established yourself over the roof, its over.


Left of "Burning from the Inside" in the cave. Across from "Order and Chaos".


5 bolts
