|Campfire Crag - South Face
Begin just left of Banquet. You may need to stick clip the first bolt if you're under 6 ft. The initial section is the crux, and very height dependent. If you're under about 6 feet tall it may shut you down. After that, fun moves on steep flakes lead to the top.
5 bolts to a 2-bolt belay/rap anchor.

I was wondering about this thing. At 5'4" I was scared clipping the first bolt for sure.

Fun climbing in cold weather. Well protected. Tough first clip if under 6ft.

To echo what others have said, clipping the 1st bolt can be challenging if under 6' - I had to jump to clip the bolt which took a number of tries; a stick clip or stiff draw would have made it much easier.
The route itself involves engaging movement on suspect features which will no doubt clean up with more traffic. The last bolt seems somewhat forced especially as you end up in the crack at the end. One star out of five, more if it cleans up.

Todd Gordon showed up and gave us some beta for this route as we were setting up to climb. Spot two hand holds and jump on to the wall (if you or someone you are with is around 6' the first bolt can be clipped from the boulder). The crux is low consisting of delicate moves. This was a fun first lead of J-Tree.

direct start up the base face off hornish rail, without using low backwall or jumping across from the top of that. felt about 5.10b/c starting that way, tenuous

Hold broke on me near the first bolt. Near the third bolt there is a really loose flake that is going to come off soon. Don't use it!!!

Not only was the first move reachy, but I felt the route was overall a reach fest. And ya, many loose and crumbly areas, be aware.
