Ready Fire Aim climbs the conspicuous outside corner that sits at the center of the After Work Boulders. Start with your right hand on a decomposing sidepull crimp and your left hand on the corner. Make a quick move to a good hold on the corner, match the hold, and fire to the lip.

Given its striking line, its fun moves, and its easy access, Ready Fire Aim is destined to become a Waterville classic.


Pads. You probably want at least two, as falls can deposit the climber on either the left side or the right side of the corner.

Does this start standing with hand at about six feet? About a foot below the good hold on the arĂȘte? Jun 19, 2014

Yes, stand start with your left hand on the flat arete and right hand on the bad crimp sidepull. Put a foot on and go hot to the good hold on the arete. Jun 19, 2014
Is it possible that the exfoliating crimp has exfoliated? Or is it just really, really small? May 2, 2016

Pretty small. Last time I did it, it was kind of a 1/4 pad sidepull undercling. It's been getting steadily worse since the FA. May 3, 2016
