Double-ropes recommended. Continue on gamesmanship, or rappel from the anchor after the first pitch of gamesmanship. To reach the anchor traverse right from sting (5.6).

5 out of 5 stars Very fun climb

Anchors are shit, but the climb is awesome... Very small cams needed to protect the traverse. One of my faves on the hill...

5 out of 5 stars crack

the traverse looked a little intimidating being short, ended up going pretty high up (ie used the probable hand holds as feet) then traversed into the other crack, this way actually went pretty smooth.

4 out of 5 stars The Sting

Deservedly popular, a nice diversion if waiting in line for Gamesmanship or as a way to wrap up the day. Once you're past the left traverse, it's 5.6 (yellow & blue cam size jams).
