This route ascends the right side of a large flake-like pillar on the left side of Mid Dome. Look for the pillar, and then several bolts on a face above the pillar.

Climb the left side of the 30' pillar, and then attack the lightly featured slab face directly above the pillar. Climbing left from the top of this pillar is another (barely) bolted route, known as figth fire with fire (5.11a). After the 3rd bolt, holds dissappear entirely and the crux is getting up this blank face to a seam that runs horizontally across the face. After the seam the route is still blank, and REALLY run out, but climbing isn't as difficult due to a decrease in angle.

Walk off to the left, or belay someone from either the cracks or a tree. You'll need a 60 meter rope to belay from the tree and some long slings.


A couple of small ~.5-1.5" cams for the initial crack, and gear (or slings) of any size for an anchor up top. 3 bolts also protect the face climbing.


Good rock. Good route! Aug 24, 2010
Actually the first ascent was Errett Allen, Karen Young and Bill (Blitzo) Serniuk. Errett led and drilled the bolts. Sep 6, 2006
