Description Suggest change

This route was put up as a logical 2nd pitch to Desperado. It follows the same path of climbing up and trending left, with the munge always on your right. It's a friction slab, much like Shadow or Desperado with similarly sparse protection. It is possible to do Desperado and Fields of Fire in one pitch, but breaking it in two gives the leader a physical and mental break. Climb accordingly.

NOTE: If you want to climb Inner Sanctum (but don't want to lead it), you can lower your partner to the ground & belay from the top in one long 180' pitch. Or bring two ropes and an extra friend to help pull the rope.

Protection Suggest change

Two bolts lead to a two bolt anchor if you climb past Desperado or Diamond.

[ed. note: 1/04 - 1 rusted anchor bolt removed and replaced with 1, ½” Rawl w/SS Double Ring. Existing smash links moved over to existing good bolt for rappelling. 1 rusty lead bolt replaced with a ½” SS Rawl.]
