Hard to miss on the far south side of The Main Wall, this may be one of the most beautiful cragging walls in Flagstaff. The base is outlined with a perfect collection of boulders, offering views of town, and highly functional staging areas. The harder lines are steep, long, pumpy, and aesthetic. They almost beg you to climb them. The area also offers enough quality warm ups to get the muscle fibers firing.

This line is the logical, indirect lefthand finish to Be the Burn that climbs the sweeping, steep headwall. This deceptively pumpy route is guaranteed to heat up your forearms, and get your heart thumping if you're breaking into the grade.At the end of the steep, scoopy dihedral of Be The Burn, move sharp left past a little boulder problem involving shallow pockets out left and a slanting rail crimp.
