This excellent route is the left of the two extensions to Firestarter. Climb that route (also excellent in itself) and continue up and left through a steep bulge/small roof feature. Establish above the roof via a classy boulder problem and make some more fun, cruxy moves on thin holds in and around the groove to better edges. Continue via pumpy but easier climbing to the anchor.


The route departs from the top of Firestarter and heads left and over a roof into a vague groove or dihedral feature.


Bolts (14?), all with permadraws/quickdraws hung aside from the last bolt before the chains. Fixed lowering anchors.
