Chad Williams leading Stim-o-Stam at Endless Wall....

Description 

This is a nice route and provides a good warm up for the other sport routes to the right. Start by traversing in from the start of Freaky Stylee or start directly by pulling through the overhang directly below the first bolt. The first bolt is about 25 ft up, but a small cam can be placed about 10 ft below the bolt if so desired. From the 1st bolt, climb up some thin face moves. The crux is approaching the 3rd bolt and leaving the 3rd bolt. From the 4th bolt continue up the face and eventually head left to gain access to the arete. Once on the arete, follow jugs to the shuts. This route is not sustained. The crux may be harder for shorter folks.

This wall is one of the first at Endless to get sun.


Location 

This route is located just to the right of The Prowess and just to the left of Freaky Stylee.


Protection 

6 bolts, shuts.

I'm 5'6" - not really what I'd consider short, but certainly not tall, and I didn't think the crux seemed reachy at all (as per the description here), just some techy pocket moves on thin feet. Fantastic route however, with stellar position and great views at the top!

Great route, just because of its position as an arete at Endless, but it kind of falls short, with a brief, low crux, and really easy climbing at the top. Totally worth doing, but not in the great pantheon of classic Endless 5.11s.
