This climbs the corner between Burning Man and Incinerator. Start on blocks, clipping the first bolt and moving into position for the second bolt, which protects the crux. Easy climbing brings you to a corner/bulge and a secondary crux which can be protected by a small cam in the crack. Above the bulge, easier climbing takes you past the last bolt to the top of the formation. Bring up your second and walk off to the south, returning through the gully between Incinerator Wall and the west face of Motherload.


3 bolts, pro to .75, pro to 3 for the anchor

The description for this route is wrong. Face climb past three bolts (passing a gear placement) and finish in a finger crack.
