You can now go straight up from the anchors for a 5.10 variation; I cleaned a huge block off the route. May 3, 2006

P1- anchor bolts may look like rap bolts from ground but are not... P2- sure couldn't find good pro for traverse, so up I went... Definitely not .8 that way and pro is thoughtful/better nuts than cams in many spots. Fun! Mar 25, 2013

Getting to the anchors on the main wall at the end of P1 is exhilarating if you are short (like me). Don't fall into the chimney on lead! Not sure if we climbed the Direct variation from the Iso guide(.10) or not. Climbing felt more like .9+ on P2 going more or less straight up. Solid route! Apr 16, 2013

Going straight up from P1 anchors is 5.10 and nuts are really nice. The original route goes to the right edge. CTK has repeated a variation start to the original route that was climbed by A. Marquardt and Brad M. May 27, 2013

TO WHOEVER SHIT AT THE BASE OF FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN- go clean your shit up. Get a bag do something with it. I don't care if it was an emergency. please respect ISO and also trad routes... Just cause bolts aren't on it doesn't mean it's not a route. - Don Feb 9, 2015

Matt and I did a variation for pitch 1 that is better climbing and more consistent with rating of pitch 2; I'm calling it the Breathe Easy variation. It goes straight up an intermittent crack system just left of manzanita at base. Gear is small cams, just bring a light rack on the pitch, .3 to #1 BD. Jan 28, 2018
