Keeper of the Flame is the middle of the three major lines through the roofs. It ends at shuts beneath an enormous blank roof at the top of the wall.

Stick clip the first bolt and step off the boulder to begin. A brief, one-move crux at a small right-facing corner to a huge hold leads to a few more moves to the anchors.


8 bolts or so. R rated without a stick clip.

Sick route! I loved the tale of two styles. The bottom is basically a cool face climb. You get a great rest and then it's out through the jugs baby. Full value!
