|The camping atop Stairs is fantastic.|

Hiked up yesterday to try the climbs... We went the Davis Path way, so it was a fun hike. The climbing is less than stellar. There was a 5.8 crack climb which my partner led, and it was cool but overall this is not a worthwhile destination. You can rappel down and mess around, maybe boulder a bit or free solo up some easy stuff, but for this one tiny 40' area it's not great. The rock was very sharp and coarse, and was almost sandy/gritty. Probably not even worth having up as a section, but I will defer.
That being said, in looking at the photo overview, we may have been unable to inspect the entirety of the cliff.... We may have missed a couple of the climbs... From my perspective at the time, there was a ton of broken up and non-protectable strange face climbs at a low grade, and accessing all of the rock was tricky because the top of the cliff was all steep bushwhack for finding a rap .... I don't know, take my comments for what you will but I was not too thrilled about the possibilities here.
