They say Hawaii is a winter wonderland. I don't think they have ever been to the Cookie! Feb 23, 2010

If someone has all the relevant information, adding Stigma (the 5.13 seam where the approach trail meets the wall) would be great. I just aided it today for practice and was surprised to see that it was missing from MP. I just don't know all the information to do a good job of adding the route, otherwise I would myself.
