Named for the odd decapitated (but still thriving) pine at the head of the crack, Stumpy is the obvious splitter seen up-gully from the top of the Betty’s climbs or the last pitch of Altered States. Standing atop Betty’s Altered Elbow the line is obvious, perhaps about 300 vertical feet and a hefty bushwack away. It requested an ascent and we obliged.
The preferred approach is to climb one of the Betty’s routes or both pitches of Altered States. This reaches a ledgy area where you can see the crack up-gully on the left. The route should be obvious- bushwack, scramble, and roll you way to the base of the climb approximately 300 vertical feet higher. Expect about 20 minutes from the top of Betty.
Good ol’ standard rack to fist size. A bunch of smaller cams for the start would be key. Perhaps doubles in hands.
