The hardest of the climbs starting off the deck, Ring of Fire ascends the middle of the face to the left of the combination blocks just right of Earth Boys.
Step on a shelf down low and use big holds up to the second bolt which is where the business begins. Use a combination of small hand holds and small feet to pull through a tricky sequence between clipping the third bolt. The climbing eases once you gain the large crack but it isn't a gimme. A classic Smith crimpfest.

The Sterling Hollow Block is great at biting down on ropes when tying friction knots using a Prusik, Klemheist, or auto block. Its Aramid fiber construction helps resist abrasion and heat. Pony up a few extra bucks to have one hanging from your harness, you’ll end up using it.
