Description

Stepping Stone is the arete to the right of Golden Gloves/Precious Orr.

Begin to the right of the arete by popping over a low roof and sketching upwards on tenuous face moves, hoping to prevent a seemingly imminent groundfall with judicious insertion of the dinky stuff until security arrives up and left in the form of some thank-your-deity-of-choice juglets. Easy and well-protected ground leads to a committing situation on the arete, at which point you'll want to begin channelling your inner sport-climber and fire for the top like you mean it. Good pro is there for the taking, but it'll cost you some burn time on those forearms...

Etiquette

Ringbolts at the top make it really easy to pull the rope and ensure your partner the same character-building experience. They'll thank you, later.

Protection

The usual stuff. A #7 HB offset can deckproof the downstairs business, but who carries those?
