Description [Suggest Change]
70m Rope RequiredA steep start through two bolts to a ledge, followed by a slightly overhanging section with wonderful pockets. After the the steep bit, the angle and difficulty eases considerably to a slopey almost-ledge (you may want to use a two-foot sling on the bolt below the next steep section).
From the ledge a gradually steepening section leads to the top past pockets, edges, and an overhanging crux to another, much larger ledge. A fun roof with big holds awaits over the top ledge, and from there it's another ten feet or so to the chains.
Note that at the tenth bolt you keep heading up and slightly right rather than left onto The Alliance.
70m Rope Required
Location [Suggest Change]
The right of three lines that are bracketed by large trees at the tallest part of the wall. Firefly starts over a squarish indentation; the first bolt is below a small roof, the second bolt is just below a ledge with a bit of a scoop in the back, which is followed by a steep section.
Protection [Suggest Change]
14 bolts, chain anchors. A two-foot sling is recommended for the bolt just below the upper headwall; longer draws on some of the bolts will help mitigate rope drag.
