Description

This is currently the 6th bolted line from the left on this buttress and starts with beige hangers. It joins Firestarter at about 1/2 height.

This starts just to the right of Firestarter below a hanging arete. The crux is in the first 10 feet as you try to get secure on smeary feet and get into a layback on the hanging arete. There is a stray bolt up and right of the 2nd bolt which may be another variation starting from the next route to the left. Ignore that bolt for this variation. Move up past 4 more bolts and traverse left into Firestarter. Continue up to a 2 bolt anchor with Mussy hooks.

Make sure to clean off your shoes before you start this route.

This may have been climbed by Ed Ash in the 1980s.

Location
