RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Fire-light is a short but fun climb - perfect for climbing by the light of a fire. The crux comes near the middle of the climb. Although it starts with an easy foot-shelf, it requires balance and small crimp-holds. The top can be difficult too. It can be tempting to cheat to the left - but don't go too far or you'll have a nasty swing if you fall.

Location 

The route is the skinny, tall wall at the bottom end of the box. Start at the right side (down the hill) and traverse left when necessary. Don't go into the crack.

Protection 

Top-rope requires a long sling if you anchor to the tree (about 15 feet from the edge). There may be other anchoring possibilities. You start at the bottom, but it's not hard to find a way to the top to set up.
