|Fire and Ice Buttress
Holy adventure sport climbing!!! Figure out the low crux and then get your sport orienteering skills on. Varied climbing with slabby traversing, big cranks, and crimp and pimping guard the anchors. FUN SHtuff!
In the depths of the Kaymoor Jungle. Just past Albatross, the ridiculously thin bolted seam, and right next to the scruffy crack climb, Raiders of the Lost Crag.
Ca. 10 bolts plus two for the anchors. Bolted anchor. Be careful falling at the crux (3rd bolt), a lot of slack could cause a ground fall.

This route is called Carolina Crocker and the Tipple of Doom, not Caroline Crocker. It was named after Carolina Joe Crocker who I believe did the FA.

It's definitely called "Carolina Crocker" and he does have the FA- 100% certain.

Guidebook says to stay right of the bolt line at the second bolt to maintain the 12a grade. I disagree (BETA ALERT:) as I found myself balancing on tiny crimps too far right to clip the 3rd bolt. Going straight up using a high heel hook and a few crimps just left of the bolt line felt right on for 12a. The rest of the climb is awesome.
