Starting 15' right of Save the Last Stance for Me (5.9), climb past three bolts up and over a steep bulge on good holds to a shared anchor/rap with that route.

This is a very atypical route as it climb steep rock on positive holds...not your typical grainy slab. This alone is reason to give this climb a go. As a bonus this and the neighboring route are seldom done so expect the wall to yourself.


Down and right from the portion of Isles In The Sky with Bird Of Fire is this dark wall with many plates which is capped by a large roof.


3 bolts to a bolted anchor/rap (all 3/8")

Another beauty! Fun roof, good rock, in the shade, easy approach, great, solid rap station. A must do!

I have to agree with Chris and Locker. This was a very fun route. Well protected and very different then the typical Joshua roof. It's all there with a good reach.
