Description

Live Fires is a pretty good route, in the class of Termination or Eclipse, but despite the Hubbel rating of 5.8, it is a bit harder than either of those. The rock is solid and the protection is good, with one 'wake up' location at a wide pod, which is the crux and also above your gear unless you brought 1 large cam. Hubbel suggests pro to 4", I suggest one larger cam. The crux ends at a 2.5" cap to the pod (bomber yellow Camalot), and the climb retains a more consistent grade of 5.7 to 5.8 to the top, where you belay from gear before wandering Eastward to find the 2-bolt rap station as for Eclipse and Termination.

Location

This route starts in the left-facing dihedral just left of the ledge from which Consternation and The Chop start from. It shares a start location with Acoplopse.

Protection

Gear from fingers to 4" with a single 5-6" piece optional (crux).
