Description [Edit]

Gemini Dragonfire climbs through the heart of the waterfall. Moderate climbing leads to a boulder problem over a bulge. Above this bulge, slabby to vertical climbing leads up a left-slanting crack. A short step right gains the seam. Small and positive edges lead to the technical crux Engaging and pumpy climbing leads to a good stance below the roof, where the climb exits left on small crimps and pockets.

Location [Edit]

Gemini Dragonfire is in the main amphitheater, right of Pyrokinesis and left of Black and Tan. The two-bolt anchor is shared with Dark and Stormy

Protection [Edit]

Gear to a 2 bolt anchor.
Recommended gear list:
Doubles from 00 BD to #.5 Camalot
Single #.75-#2 Camalot
Set of small and medium nuts
Blue Ballnut (protects bottom bulge at 5.11+R)
3 Red Ballnuts
1 Yellow Ballnut

Gemini Dragonfire would not have been possible without Carrie Albrecht. I am so grateful for her patience, belays, and encouragement.

On another topic, a grade is hard to assign on a climb like this. The crux is a short vertical boulder problem, preceded by a good rest. I welcome other opinions on the grade, as I feel the boulder problem was difficult, sequential, and height-dependant. Feb 7, 2014
