Comments: No, the route heads up over the lip above Steve and takes those obvious flakes to the top.

Comments: Anchor using the three glue-in bolts, they're close to the edge, you can set up a three medium cam anchor in a crack at the back, secure a static line, tie in to it and then walk with confidence to the edge to set up the anchor. This can also be used to back up (!) the bolt anchor, plus it you rig it correctly you can use it to hold on to until you're over the edge for the rappel.

Comments: Ahh - see that little bush? Once in November 1995, on the descent I leaned over this block to scope out the descent and wham! A diamondback bit me on the wrist.

Comments: Did not know that the Iguana finish is no more - I remember it being much more doable than the Scurf finish.

One of my best days at Stoney was top-roping all three from left to right.

Comments: Good job! In spring of 2015 my kids and I remove 56 plastic water bottles from the same place - some of them still had water in them, bloody ridiculous! I wrote to city hall to ask them to post a sign at the trailhead, with no reply.
