Pitch one goes up a crack system – the initial move may be harder than 5.6 for short climbers. Belay at the notch. Pitch 2 follows a clean finger crack up the north side of The Stirrup, with a crux headwall start. It’s a fun climb. Rappel off.

This is a fairly easy and enjoyable way to the summit of The Stirrup. Apr 26, 2007

A fun route - linked both pitches together since there were three of us - worked just fine, little to no rope drag (bring some slings if you wanna do this). I think we coulda rapped off one with 60m, but was glad we had two ropes and didn't have to find out. Pulling the rope was a bit of a cluster, so be warned. Cool view and a worthwhile climb after Gargoyle. Nov 1, 2010

You can rap with a 60M but be careful that you don't get it stuck behind the huge flake. We did and had to find the right angle of pull to get the rope clear. Dec 21, 2013
