Description 

There are a few top rope routes from 5.9-5.11 on this wall. At the base is a cave which has Hot Tuna a V5 roof traverse.

Protection Details: (2) SS Wave Bolts added for protection at the top of Hot Tuna Buttress. Flying Fish has had no protection besides some hangerless rusty bolts. It can now be top roped safely. You can still backup your anchor with a very long piece of webbing (probably over 50 feet needed)

Getting There 

Park at the top of Stoney. It is one of the first spots you come to on your right in the North Canyons. Just to the left of Roof Rock.

Is there a reason Hot Tuna isn't on here? Are we trying to keep some routes secret? I don't want to rub anyone the wrong way...

Feel free to add it Rob - I would but I've never been able to complete it.

Hot Tuna is probably the biggest reason I want to get back to Stoney Point. I managed to latch on to some local guys the one day I was there and played on that problem with them for a while. I couldn't bag it then, but I'm fairly certain I can now. I'm dying to do that route again it's so much fun.

(2) New Wave Bolts added to the top of Hot Tuna Buttress.
There are (2) old rusty hangerless bolts left up top if anyone is adept in bolt removal these should probably be removed.
