Start up using smooth softball sized huecos moving up and right. 3rd bolt section is a bit greasy. Midway you cross over a small roof which is bolt protected and continue to summit.


Right most line on east face of Crossfire Crag and just right of arching ramp/crack. SCSG 3rd edition route 785


10 bolts to shut anchors.

Nice longer route.... going straight up and through the extra greasy Huecos at the start makes this route much harder than if you use the clean arete holds out right. Off route? Maybe, but gee, it is only about 28" right of the real route. 5.8 this way. Jan 28, 2007

Real fun route. Wasn't aware it could be so easily downrated; I ran up through the bolts and had a great time on solid .10a climbing and didn't find it to be greasy at all. This one's a bitch to clean on rappel. Mar 30, 2009

The route is solid 5.8 climbing with the stiff 10a/b move right at the third bolt. Very fun climb. Apr 5, 2010

Recently did this climb. Some of the holds were loose and hollow. Some huecos were still greasy too. Jun 7, 2011
The start of this route is chossy and always will be. The rock quality is better after the start. Jun 7, 2011

This route is good fun. Make sure you take at least 10 draws. I was one short at the top and had to skip a bolt near the top (when in doubt run it out). Excellent 10a lead for the area! Sep 26, 2011

Fun route! A bit tricky in parts, a bit runout in parts, but the moves are all there. Good climb for those looking to leap more into leading more intermediates. Mar 13, 2015
