The seemingly blank face of Tastes Like Burning, 5...


The first route left of the obvious Tree Crack line. There is a thin left facing flake at the base of the route. I protected the flake with an orange power cam. Stand up on the ledge at the top of the thin flake and clip the first bolt. Fun well protected climbing on big positive holds follow up to the chains.

This is a fun, continuous route that utilizes several different techniques. You will definitely want to take a cam in the .3-.5 range for the initial moves, as a fall before the first bolt with no gear in could be disastrous for both the climber and belayer.
