You can now go straight up from the anchors for a 5.10 variation; I cleaned a huge block off the route.

P1- anchor bolts may look like rap bolts from ground but are not... P2- sure couldn't find good pro for traverse, so up I went... Definitely not .8 that way and pro is thoughtful/better nuts than cams in many spots. Fun!

Getting to the anchors on the main wall at the end of P1 is exhilarating if you are short (like me). Don't fall into the chimney on lead! Not sure if we climbed the Direct variation from the Iso guide(.10) or not. Climbing felt more like .9+ on P2 going more or less straight up. Solid route!

Going straight up from P1 anchors is 5.10 and nuts are really nice. The original route goes to the right edge. CTK has repeated a variation start to the original route that was climbed by A. Marquardt and Brad M.

TO WHOEVER SHIT AT THE BASE OF FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN- go clean your shit up. Get a bag do something with it. I don't care if it was an emergency. please respect ISO and also trad routes... Just cause bolts aren't on it doesn't mean it's not a route. - Don
