DescriptionCampfire Crag, although massive and of a good height, tends to have very few high quality routes, as most involve scraping up some grainy nondescript fissure or face climbing on rock akin to baked oatmeal; the exception is the north side of the rock - where the better rock is found.
This climb starts off a ledge some 40' up and is usually approached via another climb - Klingon Pizza (5.6), which can be third classed easily as the crux is down low. From the ledge step onto a steep, varnished wall with good rock and fun climbing. The route goes up and slightly right and then cuts back left two-thirds of the way up. From this point the angle lessens and the bolts become more spaced, as exciting friction leads up the last bit to the top. Rap off from anchors with a single rope.
This is an excellent climb that, with it's northerly exposure, can get cold in the winter months, but is a great place to beat the heat on a warmer day. Fun moves on good rock in an easily accessible location is what you can expect from this climb which is well worth doing, especially if you've tired of the crowds at the Feudal Wall or King Otto's Castle.
