BETA PHOTO: the stemming crux off shirley


A classic pitch with a somewhat feared reputation. Fear not though as the gear is good and the climbing soft for the grade. Starts on juggy holds and liebacks left of thin fingers before tackling the meat of the climb, a stemming section with few to no small hand holds.

There is a second 10d pitch above that will put you at the base of Death to Zeke, that I haven't done.

I was glad to have an orange Metolius TCU before starting up the crux stemming section.

Some small offset nuts would be really nice at the crux. The gear there gets very thin and tricky which can be a bit of a surprise if you don't know what you're getting into.
