Alison feels the pain of Stigmata, 5.12d


This route climbs right up the center of the beautiful black shield of rock just to the right of Blind Faith. Be prepared to grab some really small holds on the slabby beginning. The wall then kicks back a bit and the climbing becomes more powerful and tenuous, with a interesting sequence near the top. I felt like I was on edge the whole way up this thing.


Stigmata is located just to the right of Blind Faith. Start off of the narrow ledge.


6 bolts, closed cold shut anchors.

Nice post Greg! This route is crazy - everything from super thin, slabby tech fest to steep pumpy finish. I know a few who aren't huge fans but personally I think it's a solid four stars.

Thanks Miah. Some people aren't fans of this route? How dare they! Just kidding, I can see how this route might draw a line between the lovers and the haters. Speaking of lovers and haters, nice response on the whole "sportdork" thing...
