Climbing and access information for the La Fiamma formation is discussed on Pages 196-197 of the book. The elevation and prominence figures are estimated because the formation is not shown on the USGS topo. Published December 2023

La Fiamma is reportedly an impressive rock spire located on the southwest shoulder of Packrat Peak. It was first climbed by Fred Beckey, Steve Marts, and Dan Davis in 1963. See IDAHO, SAWTOOTH RANGE, LA FIAMMA in the American Alpine Journal. Its namesake is a famous tower in the Alps. There is very little known about this formation. The AAJ report mentions the fragility of the formation so it is possible that it was damaged by the last earthquake. I know of no subsequent ascents. USGS Warbonnet Peak

This map provided by Kirk Bachman shows the approximate location of the formation.
