Description 

This route is on the north side of Turkey Rocks. This pitch can be reached by either climbing Rastafarian or Finger Lickin' Good. Broken blocks and the crack runs all sizes. The jams are all there.


Protection 

From yellow Alien to #4 Camalot. No anchors at the top, so you will need to build an anchor.


Location 

The start of the climb is to the right of the webbing anchors on finger lickin' good. The anchors are on a fairly good ledge. Mantle up on the large block to start the climb. Left a webbing anchor at the top to rap down to the anchors at Finger Lickin' Good. Used a 70m and had no problems reaching the first anchors and getting to the deck.

The first corner after leaving the Finger Licken Good belay, and also the crux, big stem, slightly overhanging, didn't feel like 5.9.

Climbed what we thought was WildFire on Sunday July 25th, seems harder than 5.9? Got the first 2 pitches of Finger Lickin Good and belayed from the top of the 2nd pitch anchors. The first corner after leaving FLG anchors was interesting! Not a great route, but good top out.
I see Kevin Fox claims to have left webbing for and anchor, it was not there on this day! Not sure what happened?
