This route is toward the middle of the south face of Campfire Crag and is approached in any number of easy cracks to its base. You'll have a few moves to get to the first bolt so take along some medium cams. It's sandbagged moving from the second bolt to the top. Be that as it may, it's a fine route. There are rap anchors.


2 bolts, gear to 2.5", bolted anchor/rap

Decent enough climbing that gets lots of sun too. The fixed anchor is a recent improvement by the FA party. Jan 9, 2004
Picnic (5.6) was a good approach to K-L-W and has rap anchors as well. I would have felt better having a bigger cam (Camalot 3.5-4) getting to the first bolt. For added excitement, give the first bolt a wiggle after you clip it. It looks new enough, but seemed to move a bit. Dec 3, 2004

The three of us today felt it closer to 5.9 A good route! A number two Camalot worked fine in the crack at the start. May 4, 2005

The first bolt is in need of replacement. It appears to be a 1/4" or 5/16" buttonhead spinner. The second bolt, which protects the crux moves, is a nice new 3/8" Rawl. Moves felt very 5.9ish up top. Dec 25, 2011

I agree that the moves past the second bolt are more like 5.9. Nice route though, but make sure your leader is comfortable at the grade. Jan 2, 2015
