Description:

Two sections to this climb really. The first follows an easy crack up to a ledge with a good-sized tree. The second section is a real pain if its windy. This is a large off width crack that denies use of most pro (unless your packin big bros). Easiest to climb if you stay just right of the crack. You'll also find an exposes bolt half way up that you can sling with a wired nut.

3 out of 5 stars gets in your head

I forgot how run out the top half is. More mental than physical on this climb

4 out of 5 stars Runout

as a way to get to the tree ledge, it is useful, but the second half of this climb is runout. good thing it is easy climbing

3 out of 5 stars Needed Fast Access to the Tree Ledge

I needed a really quick route to the tree ledge so I could set up a top-rope for our group and this was the closest route to our gear since we just climbed the Pulpit. This route can be a little deceptive, use caution if not used to climbing at Stone.
