Crimp up an arete then finish up an exciting slab. Sound like fun? Sit start the arete to the left of the pointed stump with a right hand sloper and a good left hand pinch. Pull up to a set of crimps, then using a cool left hand divot on the slab, make a scary move out right to a slopey sidepull that will help you get up onto the slab. Finish up the slab to an easy topout. Great movement, but try not to fall onto the spear.

Removing the stump would seem like a very good idea. A lot more people would get on this route, it sounds like a cool problem.

It is a cool problem, a lot of fun. The stump can be covered with a pad or be spotted away from but it would definitely help if it weren't there. A very good problem nonetheless.
