Description

Stud Pile is a fun, little route with variety but is more challenging to protect. Find this route just left of the obvious dihedral/jam crack, EB Jeebies. It climbs better than it looks. This is often in the shade until mid-afternoon.

Start right behind a small evergreen (pine?) tree. Grab the rounded edge, and muscle/balance up. This may be challenging to get stable to protect. Move up into the small dihedral with fun stemming. You can use the crack on the right for pro or climbing. Traverse right under the roof, & kick around to easier ground. You can belay just above the roof or there is a small tree & grooves 20 feet back from the top.

Scramble off to the SE.

This gets 1.8 stars IMO.

Protection

Bring gear with an emphasis on small gear (wires, RPs, Aliens/TCUs) with a couple larger cams to start.

A small stopper placement is right at your waist at the crux. The opportunity for (or lack thereof) protection is more enervating than it is dangerous, as it appears as you go. Also - the roof is surprisingly not difficult. Aug 15, 2017
