The Incinerator, Ruta de Fruta. In October 1982 Simon King and I climbed this route following the obvious crack in the center of the face. We began at the top of a detached slab with aid moves around a roof to a flared slot that went free. A knobby face and crack led to a belay alongside a chockstone. We followed cracks and knobs to the summit. II, 5.8, Al.
