Fire Pit V5

Description 

A small hill set apart from the ridge, this is the most logical place to park for most of the western areas of Pena Blanca.

There are multitudes of boulder problems all the way around this formation. There are also some tantalizingly steep faces, but they are pretty chossy. Many of the boulder problems also are on delicate rock and having holds break is all part of the fun.

Area highlights include: the Puff Boulder, The Rave Cave, and Dark Roof a reported V10 roof crack.


Getting There 

The Volcano is easy to recognize as you are driving to the area. Right after a large parking area on the left, there is a dirt track that leads directly to the Volcano. High clearance advisable. Without 4WD you can still make it almost to the Volcano: when you are almost there, you will pass a pull-off on the right (east) right before a steep/rutted hill. 4WD is almost certainly needed to get back up this bad section of rd, so unless you have that, park here. 100ft beyond this pull-off is a large parking area on the west flank of the Volcano.
