Originally V2 until the starting foothold broke, now significantly harder at V4. Updated start: Start matched hands at the bottom of a diagonal fin on some crimp rails, that is a couple of feet to the left and below the "quartz caterpillar." Find a low left foot,and paste a right toe on a high divot. The crux is at the start - work hands up the rail to a big cross over with the right hand to the flat ledge high and to the left of the start. From there get your feet up, and head up and left - big moves through juggy flakes that are fairly far apart. The straightfoward top out is at the notch on great feet and small features on top for hands.
On the right side of The Fire Boulder, find the vertical stripe of chunky quartz that resembles a caterpillar. Below this, and a couple of feet to the left, is a sloping, right facing rail. Match hands on this to start, left foot starts on the sharp crimpy flakes below, and right foot starts on anything you can get purchase on off to the right.
