Description Suggest change

Climbing on Steins Pillar dates back to the '50's with multiple, multi-day attempts to finally make the summit via the NE Face. This vertical museum of fixed protection now goes free at sandbag 5.11a, yet most ascents still use some aid.  
The West face is now the standard route for free climbing.  It's a spectacular, stiff for the grade, sketch trad experience, that isn't soon forgotten.  
The best route on the pillar, the Tammy Jo route, ascends a sustained, 5.11+ arete, all the way to the top.
All routes have fixed anchors with modern bolts and can be descended with a single, 70 meter rope.  If topping out, the NE face is the standard descent route.
