Description

Flameout climbs a sweet finger/thin hands crack up a small buttress. Unprotected face and slab climbing leads to a short, lower angle finger crack. Climb this finger crack to a stance below the crux bulge. Plug in a few finger to thin hands size pieces and power up the short bulge to a shallow corner and then the ledge on top.

Location

Located halfway between Pinacate and the Twilight Zone.

Cams to a #1 Camalot (#3, #3.5, and #4 Camalot useful for first hueco.

Greg,

That is a great story. I will have to try the "Lameout" variation the next time I am up there.

A question, have you climbed Watermellon? (The next crack system to right of Flameout.)

Good route, not a sandbag at 5.9 (surprise surprise). I would have liked it more if it had more than one hard move. Mellow for 5.9 Aug 22, 2007

Wade and I ( well Wade really) gave this route a super brush down today, and cleaned a lot holds. Really fun warmup, and a short, well protected crux might make it a good first 5.9. Jun 27, 2015
