Casey Bald on Reign of Fire


This route is the best squeeze job in the Northeast. It's found directly above the first pitch of Revolt of the Dike Brigade. The route follows flakes and slabs to meet up with the Beelzebub corner and pulls over the overlap and up to the anchors on Loose Lips. Enjoy!


Standard rack and long runners to reduce u know what!!!

I thought this was a Brad White route...

With double ropes (or lots of long runners)it's quite reasonable to link Revolt into Reign of Fire for one long, sweet pitch. I'd say it's not for the timid 5.9 leader though.

Brad White and Ian Cruickshank did the FA in 2002.

It's a nice route. The moves at the roof are fun and surprising that they go at 5.9, which I feel they do. The bit from the dike to underling roof is easy but a bit runout. You'll want a large-ish cam (#2 or #3) before you start to traverse left.

Probably a bit easier for tall folks as there are a few reachy sections.
