Description

A difficult start is aided by nice holds throughout the climb. This route is one of many in the area that are solid leads for a climber gaining experience with lead climbing. A set of rap rings about 2/3s of the way up the wall makes a nice spot to stop, but if you traverse to the right, there is another set of anchors atop a small roof. From here, you can lead up a second pitch, and make it to the top. The second pitch is 5.6

Location

Located on the North Face (Fire Dome) of the South Comb. It begins just to the left of the "hump" in the dirt in front of the face. It is very close to Mystic Monkey, so don't get them mixed up! See topo for reference

Protection

6 bolts. Solid anchor with rap rings

actually we've placed chains 2/3s of the way up, left of the overhang for those wanting to toprope the route during classes.
However, the actual route follows a bolt right traversing to a belay ledge ontop the overhang. From here take an airy rappel off or continue to the top of the S. Comb in a second pitch following a bolt line straight up about 95 feet (5.6). Jul 11, 2018
