For good reason, one of the most climbed 5.12 sport routes in the Lower Gorge. Continuously enjoyable and interesting moves in sustained, varied and technical terrain create this classic climb. The crux is about 2/3rds up.
Wildfire Wall, South side of the Crooked River.
Starts on a block leaning against the wall and veers up and left.
Bolts with rap anchors at the top.

This is one of many stupendous routes in the Lower Gorge pioneered by John Rich. He recently extended the route on overhanging jugs (10c - bolt protected) for a full value 100' pitch!

FWIW, the extension is in-credible! Definitely do it. Unlike anything else at the grade in the Park.

The most difficult section is a strange stemming section that will work you over. When you hit the crux stay left, it is chalked out right but there is nothing there.
