Climb the easy face, clip a bolt and work left onto the prow on another bolt and a pin. Place some gear and climb another bolt or two.


Walk up the obvious trail. When you hit the water near the wall walk West and look for a flat area with nice flat boulders to sit on. Its the right of two bolted starts and is just to the left of a prominent prow. If you stand just below the route and by the big pine tree you can look to the right of that prow and see the steep face of Burning Embers.


bolts, medium cams and nuts.

[Hide Comment] Sweet route! I placed a good amount of gear as I got kinda gassed moving through the crux. Lots of options and it stays exciting enough to keep your head in it from start. Gear section does have good jugs and gear, its just not a total gimme. Give r a go! Jul 25, 2016

[Hide Comment] Use a long sling on the pin or un-clip it on the way down to reduce swing/pull on the follower. You can get by with a set of cams from .75 down. Aug 22, 2017

[Hide Comment] What a gem. Engaging until you hit the chains. Single set from #2 camlot down to #2 Metolius seemed spot on. Aug 28, 2020
