Climb by straddling the arete and using the face. Great route because you can get a couple knee bars/no hands rests on very steep terrain. Two fixed pins and decent gear options. Hard onsight but can be top-roped from Burn Signals anchor.


On the far right of CAR WALL, look up and locate the first fixed pin near the arete.

Right of Burn Signals(5.10)


North Carolina Trad Rack. Small to Medium gear and two rusty fixed pins.

Two bolt chain anchor shared with Burn Signals left of Scorched Earth Defenses. Or sling a big boulder up top.
