Description 

Full name: A Firestorm to Purify.

This route climbs directly up a steep, imposing roof with big moves on surprisingly good holds. Definitely a boulderer's sport route, requiring power, core tension, and even a virtual top out when you pull the lip.

Unfortunately, a key hold broke off shortly after I put the bolts in. The new crux sequence now goes left of the bolt line, meaning you'll take a swing if you blow it mid crux. It's a clean fall under a roof, but it adds a bit of commitment when working out the beta.

The route has cleaned up well, but it's the Jungle Cliff--bring a brush and be prepared to get a little dusty.

Location 

Obvious roof with fixed draws. To the left of Ecocide.

Protection 

Bolts. Fixed draws on the first several clips to aid cleaning. Shares the last bolt and anchor with Ecocide.
