Onsight of Firecracker


Getting started is strenuous, and it isn't over: several easier, but challenging moves lie along the way. Climb the crack to a stance (shared with Jammer), then follow the left-leaning crack to another stance. Climb the short, bomb-bay chimney to a wide crack and up to its top. Step right, up, then up and left to reach one final right-rising crack to the top.


This route begins at the "S" shaped crack just left of the scramble-up to the Jammer Wall.


Standard rack plus doubles of #1 and 2 C4s, maybe even #3.

The opening move is the classic "inconvenient hard start." The rest of the route is 5.7, the opening move not so much.

I thought this pitch had more enjoyable jamming than Jammer.
