Thin, technical crimping up to and past the 2nd bolt. Easier climbing from the third bolt to the anchors.

Note: I couldn't find any beta on the route name, so if you know what it is, feel free to post up!


The 3rd route from the left on Tim's Thumb. Just left of "Father's Day".


5 bolts to chains anchor

This is a good sequency balance climb and quite different from most Fire Wall routes. Do this one before you hit the hard 11's and it'll get your balance and feet straight! I think it's more like an 11a.

It now has an independent anchor. 2 bolts with chains
