BETA PHOTO: Hang Fire 12a


Begin with crimpy moves leading to a big hueco at the third bolt, then through more cruxy bits on varying holds punctuated by the occasional big hold and OK rest oppurtunity every 3rd or 4th move. Then work into a horizontal break before the roof. Negotiate the bulging roof with big pulls between big holds and enjoy the air below.


Just right of casual entertainment, visible from where the trail hits the wall. Got a toaster sized hueco 25 feet up


9ish bolts to 2BA
