Description

Dare Seize the Fire is a challenging and thrilling journey up the clean panel of thin seams in the middle of the Stripes Wall.

Begin on the first 2/3 of Burning Bright, then bust left along a seam. As the seam ends, place a small but solid TCU and engage a long, complex boulder problem up the streaked panel. Place more tricky gear at a pumpy stance, then do the final layback moves to the anchor at the top of the wall.

This route was established head-point style. The crux sequence is long, very beta intensive, and nearly impossible to suss on lead. A ground-up ascent would be impressive to say the least. Hypothetically, the small cam at the start of the crux would keep the climber off the ground, but it could be close.

Protection

A set of cams from a purple TCU to hand-sized with doubles from 0.75" to 1.25".
