The Stem From Heck
Closed March 15 through June 30 MORE INFO >>>


Climb the nice hand-jam crack up to the dihedral. From here, climb the right crack that turns into a skinny offwidth at the top (if you go left it looks as though you're climbing a finger crack). Shady wall is great for when it gets hot in St. George.


Just to the right of Extinction (5.10a) and left of Polluting the Gene Pool (5.11a).


Assuming standard rack, but unsure since I topropped it.

the three of us that climbed this route last weekend felt like this was more like a 5.9-. Anyone else feel that way?
