70m Rope Required

A 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


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.


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.

Arguably the best 5.10c in the canyon. Sep 9, 2013

Great route. My favorite 10 I've done in AF. I thought that the anchors would make more sense moved about 3 feet left. The last part of the route calls for some sketchy traversing on holds that are ready to blow (and did several times!). Felt a little out of character from the rest of the route. Sep 12, 2013
Awesome route! Definately feel exposed pulling the final roof, the holds are all there, but is your endurance? Amazing view from the chains Sep 25, 2014

Favorite climb in the area. The moves through the upper overhang were thrilling. Thoroughly enjoyed this pitch. Did not encounter any loose rock. Good to go!! Jun 14, 2015
