BETA PHOTO: Firecracker


Start with both hands on a decent face hold, then move up and to the left past the crack. Move up again to the top (some tricky foot beta will help) and mantel the finish.


When the trail splits go to the left, Firecracker is in the second group of boulders (at the bottom of a short steep hill.) It is up a crack which will be on your right when you are on the trail.


pads and spotters certainly make you feel better.


Vid of Firecracker starts at about 1:45.

Frequently the landing zone for this problem is a 10 ft wide puddle. Therefore, whenever this problem has a dry landing it should be done.

Yeah, spring seepage is definitely a problem, but it's still doable then if you don't mind getting your pad soaked, or if you trust yourself in not falling. Besides that, this thing is a total blast!
