Description 

The right facing corner in the middle of Stonehouse's main face.

Well protected laybacking up the full length of the corner. Starts at the base of the corner, follow up on laybacks and face holds behind and above you. Belay from a tree further back, or hand sized cams just below the top.

A variation goes from near the top of the corner, but traverses right after the vertical step. Makes for really fun, airy moves out right on good feet, with hands in a horizontal. Good gear, good hands, and an airy feeling. Great climbing, finish as for The Nose (5.8).


Location 

The large right facing corner that starts on the left side of the large ledge that holds the start to Joke Book (5.9) and The Nose (5.8).

Walk off the top, or rappel off a tree back from the topout. No fixed anchor or slings/links/rings on the tree.

Protection 

Single rack of camalots .3-2, nuts or hexes as you please. Two alright-looking fixed pitons mid-route. Smaller cams available, as is wider, but not necessary.
