A fun outing in an area rarely visited with great views of Maple. One 60M rope will work great.
P1: 30M 5.9
P2: 30M 5.7
P3: 15M 5.2 (loose rock)
P4: 20M 5.7


Follow directions to The Armory. Bushwack to the wall, west facing, from the trail. As of June 2006 there are three routes, Slam fire is the middle line. The right line had a fixed rope and is not yet complete, Phantom Fury. The left line is one 30M pitch, Dryfire. Belay has a separate belay bolt and the stance is about 10 feet off the ground. Plenty of lichen and loose rock left so wear a helmet and be careful of your rope.


Bolts all the way.
P1, P2, P3 have rap rings or chains. P4 used webbing and quick links so bring some replacement webbing.

Go to the top for the view but expect marginal climbing past pitch 1. Jun 17, 2017

There is a cairn marking the start of a trail that heads straight to the climbing. It is before the fork in the trail the splits to go to the view point.

Climbed this late November and it was perfect, sun from 12 til 4.

Pitch two starts to wander slightly to the left after the 3rd or so bolt and its easy to miss the following bolts as well.

Great route! Nov 21, 2014

When we climbed this we didn't have much information. On the first pitch we ended up climbing a pitch to the left and traversing about 20 feet from the belay atop that pitch to the belay for the first pitch of Slamfire. The pitch to the left felt about 5.8?? The traverse from said anchors to anchors on Slamfire was easy, about 5.6. Jun 27, 2008

Thought this route was great! Thanks to Jason and the others putting up longer routes of all different difficulties at Maple. I appreciate the good job that was done on the setup of this route. I know it takes a lot of work and time to do a good job establishing routes like this, not to mention the expense of the hardware. Anyway, thanks for the work! Jun 16, 2008

Pitch one and two are long and ascend the face. Pitch three is short and puts you on the summit of a detached buttress. For pitch four you step over the chasm that separates the buttress from the main wall (about a four foot gap) and ascend the summit on the main face. Jul 17, 2006
