Just right of Yell Fire is another slab to roof problem. Tiptoe up to a decent stance just before the roof then use thin seams and edges to extend as far as possible to reach a good hold in the flake. Thug over the lip then enjoy less stressful climbing to an enjoyable airy finish. Use a long draw for the roof bolt to save your rope.
Moves: Slab to buldge
Descent: Quick links
Stays Dry: Does not stay dry

look up the meaning of the route name, go take a look at the line, and then you'll get the connection. this entire section of wall will make for a good outing.

interesting route, not nearly as technical as the routes to the left but more burley. i like the ending but it could use a good brushing.

Sco Bro said on February 14th, 2009
It wasn’t brushed when I figured out the beta going to the anchors on lead the first time, why should it be any easier for the masses?

pawilkes said on February 14th, 2009

pigsteak said on February 15th, 2009
ah, I see. you number chasers never repeat a route, or go back and do any service for the community at large. my bad, I'll scrub it the next time scobro and I go out there and spend another 10 plus hours getting the route ready. :)

sweet, that would be highly appreciated. and if you have some spare time put up a few more classics so i can keep chasing the numbers, i'm running out of stuff to do that i don't have to project.

I loved it, the crux fell like an 11 to me...the rest was tons of fun....

great rout, i thought pulling the bulge was a bit harder than 11b, or I may have just done it the hard way

Hadn't been "shut down" on an 11b in a while, but this one did the trick and damn near popped my hip outta place in the process! Guess I'll have to go back some day to see if it was due to trail day workage, suckage, or sandbaggage.

Kipp: what a line! What a wall! The name makes perfect sense, and the route is awesome, spicy!

Woman, how can a route be spicy on toprope? Please enlighten me...

pigsteak said on October 15th, 2009
she meant the equipper is spicey..... I concur.

woman said on October 15th, 2009
That is what I meant, pigsteak. :) Also, I was scared belaying, that's why it was still spicy! Definitely planning to climb it properly upon return.

Anonymous what sucks harder, this wall or you on the receiving end of a glory hole?

methinks someone got spanked good and hard on this wall....

Great route. I must have spent 15 minutes under the "wave". I kept getting pushed out trying to reach the flake only to figure out I had to move my left foot down 3 inches... and it made all the difference. Very unique line for the Red!!!

as i was climbing this route, i noticed you can clearly deck at the top falling into the slab below if a hold breaks, being this is the Red and things break, snap crackle and pop a lot here, easy solution move a bolt, add another- was told to bring a cam for a crack up there- did not know it was mixed route- do not see anything about that in description, not a good time to be bold and run it out. yes it is easy but not the point- protect the climber-T

Amazing route! The move to the roof and moving over the roof is ridiculously cool. A little tricky figuring it out at first but I'm definitely going back for the send.

Feels like a huge sandbag until the magic beta is unlocked then it's totally reasonable. Rad route!
