Burning Bright is the obvious and longest line up the middle of the Stripes Wall. It has great rock quality and moves that are always difficult but never completely stopper.


Standard rack to 2 inches. It is nice to have a couple of 0.3 sized pieces for the last 15 feet.


For some reason, my much stronger climbing buddies stayed off this one on the sharp end, allowing me to make the first actual lead. Thanks, fellas!

  • And yes, Dougald, I toproped the hell out of it before leading it. Onsighters will want to be actual 5.12 climbers, I think.

After top-roping this and the Hammer to the right, we had two conclusions: 1) Burning Bright is considerably harder than the Hammer; 2) it's hard to believe Burning Bright is not 5.12 to lead, given the difficulty of hanging out in sustained laybacks and placing good pro. Unique and beautiful climbing! Jul 5, 2015

I can't think of a better 60 ft of climbing anywhere! The top is exciting. Felt slightly harder than Respect the Elders. Jul 12, 2015
