Description

The five pitch line is the right-most route at the Armory. Three pitches at the start lead to the top of the second pitch of Slamfire. Finish up on the last two pitches of Slamfire. I would say the crux is at the roof bulge at the beginning of the second pitch. While the last couple pitches arn't very exciting they do lead to the summit with a great view and a registry box. I recommend doing all five pitches. Cool route

Location

Climbs to the right of Slamfire.

Protection

5 pitches full of bolts with bolted belays at the end of every pitch. Don't remember exactly, but I think it was something like 15-17 quickdraws at most on the 1st or 2nd pitch. Can be rappelled with one 60 meter rope. If Rapping Phantom Fury make sure to use all the belay stations if you're using a 60 meter rope

The 2nd pitch crux is 6 or more grades harder than anything else on the climb. (NOT 5.10b). Sadly this detracts a bit from the climb as a whole - there is clearly a lot of fun climbing on it nevertheless. Jul 6, 2016
