Jason Stevens & Jared Nielson put up the 4 pitch Slam Fire. The first pitch is a 5.8 30m and climbs through a band of weaker conglomerate. It is here where the 5.8 moves are. the rest is probably 5.7. It has been cleaned but Darren Knezek and I pulled a few big rocks off as we were probably 2nd and 3rd ascenders. The 2nd time I went up with Lee Jensen things were alot cleaner.

The 2nd pitch is also close to 30 meters and a nice 5.7 climb. The 3rd pitch is only about 15m and an easy 5.2 at most if that. there is loose rock around the area of this pitch. (Note: When you top out on the ridge on pitch 3 you will encounter a rappel not belay from here. Continue another 20 feet up and left to a 2-bolt anchor on top of the column and belay from there. The chain anchors is for the descent.)

Between the 3rd and 4th pitch is a chasm of about 4 foot width. Somehow when you first look down through the chasm it looks wider. There is a belay bolt back but near where the climber will cross. Jason spray painted many of his bolts brown with a splach of light yellow so they blend in. the 4th pitch is probably 60 feet with the first 25 feet bing the 5.7 then it flattens out a bit and climbs a gully to the top. Sign the summit register (in a red Ammo can right of the anchor). A 60 meter rope will reach the belys on rapel but tie knots in the end of your rope and follow the bolts down.
