Description

Begin a few feet left of the last pitch of Rhombohedral (the obvious, wide crack/chimney on the north side of the formation that houses Sooberb's last pitch). Climb the zig-zagging, steep crack through the initial overhanging section 5.9 and continue up a crack system to another overhang. At this point, one can exit left via a handcrack flake (keeping the route 5.9) or continue upwards on excellent, well-protected rock, and the routes crux, to the top. It is named after the stair cases dubbed "Crazy Stairs" built up the Bastille and Rotwand Wall in the turn of the century for tourists at the Eldorado Springs Resort to get better view of the Canyon.

Standard Eldo rack.

Nice route Kent and Mike! The crux was pretty devious and tricky, and now has a fixed nut due to me falling on it at the crux. Felt hard at the grade. Definitely worth doing if you are in the neighborhood! Mar 26, 2008
Fun route; hard, but well-protected crux. A nice way to get here is via Bridget the Midget and Muscle and Hate. Feb 2, 2013
