A cool climb that is somewhat an anomaly for Linville as it climbs a crack feature for its entire length. Climb the corner feature that arches left. Although the corner looks wide there are many places that accept finger to hand size pieces. Once the crack arches to left you will come to an obvious belay stance. From here the crack turns vertical again, follow this to the trees.

I'm not sure who may have tried to climb this before me, there was some pink and green webbing found about 20 feet up the initial corner.

The route was named after an old red kerosene lantern that was found rusted at the bottom. It was left at the base for posterity.


Climbers left of somalian pirate at an obvious dihedral.
