Pulling the bulge on Flame thrower


Climb a technical and interesting slab up to the base of the large roof. Sack up, pull the roof, and keep it together going to the anchors.

An awesome pitch! The steepest climb in the canyon.


The third route from the entrance, marked by the obvious bolted roof feature.


bolts + mussy's.

Very well-bolted. The face climbing below the roof is actually much better than it looks from the ground. The roof holds are big, don't be intimidated.

Incredible face climbing below the roof. Only about 5.10b/c until there. Roof is awesome climbing but coming from the Red River Gorge it felt more like 5.11b rather than 11+. There is an awesome hand jam right when you start to think there isn't another jug.
