Description

From the middle of the crag, Fire The Boss angles a bit right up a short ramp with what was some surface debris. This has markedly improved over the years, but some the starting rock is still friable. Nonetheless, Fire The Boss still kicks up some fine climbing. Chase four bolts of 5.10 climbing to a complex sequence into a corner system and over the roof. The crux is in getting bcak on the feet after turning the corner, and this is a fun sequence on great stone.

Protection

QD only (6 -7) and a 50 m rope. The double bolt anchor at the top serves for both Fire The Boss and the route to its left "Entrepreneur" (5.11c).

The crux move on this route seemed harder than any single move on Free Enterprise.... Apr 2, 2013

Still needs some more cleaning & the crux bolt is in a suboptimal position. Sep 14, 2004

Not the greatest - still pretty chossy with only one hard move.Worth doing, however.

I thought Free Enterprise was much better. Sep 13, 2004

I agree with the crux comment... I had a choice to make either, move my right foot left (regaining the "footing") and leave my two middle fingers "lodged in the" crack (tiny), or back down. I will say that my right hand is still in tact... Stiff crux. Aug 28, 2003
