Access Issue: Partial Closure in Effect 4.1.19 Details


Be the Burn takes on the very aesthetic left facing dihedral to the left of Steeper by the Dozen and to the right of the very conspicuous Control Burn. The line also shares the same techy start and first three bolts of Steeper by the Dozen. Some people refer to it as the "scoop" route. Perhaps the best of it’s grade for Dacite routes in Flagstaff.

Climb thin techy face past solution pocket to ledge. Move up the weakness and then left to access the steep, scooped, left facing dihedral. A tricky, palmy stem move guards the entrance to the mondo rail and the steeper climbing. After the dihedral move up and just right through a bouldery sequence to a good shake at a marginal break, (Burning Point breaks off left at the very tippy top of the dihedral).

Weave your way up through steep climbing, staying left for the harder line. Grab ahold of the giant glommy rail at the top, and move quickly left to an incut anchor clipping jug. Feels pretty steep for Flag.

Back cleaning and runners in the first 1/3 of the route is smart. Clean on top rope.
