Description

Climb steep plates past four bolts up and right to a bolted anchor/rap underneath the large roof. Near the top, as the angle lessens the bolts become more spaced. Not terribly runout, but it will probably keep you on your toes.

A fun climb that is fairly well bolted on steeper than usual rock and worth doing if nearby. The climb next to this (Slam Dance, 5.10c) is also worth doing.

Location

Approach as normal for Isles In The Sky, but aim for a wall down and right from the portion containing Bird Of Fire. This dark wall is covered with many plates and is capped by a large roof. A short bit of scrambling leads to the base, and by scrambling up a rib just left of the wall one can easily access the base of Bird Of Fire.

Protection

4 bolts to a bolted anchor/rap (all 3/8")
