The incomparable Katy Lockard shivering on Fire It...


Head up the decent hand crack to a good ledge. The initial crack opens up a little bit above the ledge, signaling that it's time to start moving onto, up, and over the left wall. A good stem off to the left will help here.

Congratulate yourself, as you've found the payoff on this route. Fun moves up the finger crack to the top.


Start at the left side of the inset part of the Vault (just right of where the trail reaches the base -- here meant to alert the intrepid climber that there's not much in the way of sun).


8 bolts to bolt anchors.

Fun route. The crack on the upper part of the route is more of a hand crack with some solid jams. I pulled off a loose sidepull just below the 6th bolt, but there are other good holds there to use.

Very cool route, stay to the right and in the corner using jams for full value.
