Description 

A surprisingly nice route for the grade, Steggo is a good test for novice leaders to learn how to spot less-than-obvious placements for pro. It can also be set up as a toprope by scrambling up a gully on the left.

Start on the slabby face, moving up on easy ground with thin protection. End at a big tree on top of the wall.

Location 

The first climb down the trail from the parking lot, on a short, slabby wall.

Protection 

Small gear (nuts, tricams, cams); sling well as pro can zigzag. Anchor at the tree.

great route, my first outdoor TR, it does feel like a little more that 40 ft though.

Awesome for practicing gear placement. There are a few bomber spots that you kind of have to look for. I was able to sink a couple of nuts and make a really solid TCU placement. Excellent teacher.
