Perhaps if you're bored....

A seldom climbed line on the formation called Stumbling Block in the lower part of the canyon about a 1/3 of a mile W of and N of Tunnel 1. Viewed from below, there is a spire like rock that may draw yer eye. This block winds up being smaller and less interesting than you might expect. You can approach this from downhill of the Skinny Legs Formation. Expect to break a sweat and probably spend 20+ minutes in the process.

Find/spy a couple bolts just left of a dihedral/chimney. Climb up via face moves and then a crack using gear to reach the 2 bolts and then the ledge. You can use gear plus clip a bolt of Decolletage (a 5.12 b/c pitch above with 7 bolts) for an anchor.


Small cams plus 2 QD, plus gear and sling for anchors.
