Description

Wildfire ascends an overhang via crimps, rails, and a fair amount of body tension.

Sit start with a small left hand bump and a right hand incut crimp. From there, crank up to a left hand edge (crux), work the feet up to the right, then cross over with a big right hand, gain the welcome shelf, traverse left a few feet, and top it out on the jugs.

I don't think it makes a lot of difference for the grade, but avoiding the platform with the feet out left at the end of the problem adds style to the problem.

Location

This ascends the south face of Ritz Boulder. This problem shares the same start as Lisenby Legacy but opts out the direct finishes but traversing left on the good shelves.

Protection

A few pads should do it, the landing is very good for this problem.
