Climbing the strange wall directly above Firestarter this somewhat steep crack makes for a great second pitch to the Burner brothers- albeit diametrically different in width from the first. Navigate the old snag above the Firestarter upper belay and launch into an odd concoction of thin crack, large knobs, and small rodents. The rock is surprisingly good (until the last moves) considering the ratty quality of the other Upper Burner routes. Walk off or rap off eroding horns and tat.

Surely this has been climbed before(?)- if you have previous ascent info and/or a real name PM me and I'll update it.


Starts on the ledge at the top of Firestart/Burner


Light rack.
