Description

Some of the best pockets in Western Wyoming can be found in the large left-facing dihedral at the right end of the Killer Cave, and Ring of Fire is no exception. Climbing a beautifual swath of tufa-stone, sinker pockets seem to appear at just the right intervals, but be prepared to crank quite far between them. Despite its length, this line is not very sustained, with the business involving a brief & powerful series of pulls over the obvious roof at 3/4" height.

Begin as for Bush Doctor, etc, with a stem off the boulder to reach the obvious crack system. Grunt your way up the crack to the point where Bush Doctor & Bloodline undercling right. Stay left for one more clip from the crack before launching onto the steep bulge. Head straight up towards the obvious roof and a distinct crux involving excellent pockets. Fight the pump through more great pockets for another two bolts to the anchor.

The pockets on this route are a little raspy compared to routes on the left side of the cave.

Location

On the right side of the Killer Cave, beginning up the obvious dihedral of Bloodline & Bush Doctor.

Protection

~12 Bolts or so, but the first ~6 are fixed chain/cable draws. Bring ~7 draws for the upper half. 2 Bolt anchor.
