Description [Suggest Change]

This line is the logical, lefthand finish to Be the Burn that climbs the sweeping, steep headwall and has now become the top half of Control Burn. This deceptively pumpy route is sure to heat up your forearms, and get your heart thumping.

At the end of the steep, scoopy dihedral of Be The Burn, move sharp left past a little boulder problem involving shallow pockets out left and a slanting rail crimp. This problem leads you to a slippery jug just over the bulge. Continue up past some pockets out left, and big moves over the small roof. A very good shake after the roof will hopefully let you get something back before the redpoint crux which guards the anchor.

Location [Suggest Change]

Breaks off left of Be The Burn at the very top of the dihedral.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Bolts, 2 bolt anchor with Mad Rock steel biners
