Description [Edit]

We start this a little different then the book describes by simply starting off the trail. Go straight up first block to nice ledge where the Nameless Arete starts. Continue straight up the graffiti section about 10 feet off ledge is the crux you pull and awkward mantel then reach for small crimpers above you. Continue straight up to big roof. Holds are there but sometimes you have to reach and get keep them feet on.

Protection [Edit]

Bolts and chains at top. This can be lead but is run out and gear is marginal.

Fun climb on sharp rock. I've cut my fingers and torn pants on it. Nov 23, 2010

My first 5.10 and made it on my first attempt. I think I must have avoided some crux somehow because although it was tough, it seemed easier than other 5.10s I have failed at. Nice climb, starts off with some bouldering moves to get you on the the first ledge, then better than average holds (as far as Stover goes) lead up a sharp and gritty face. Slightly overhanging at parts but not too bad. This climb will work on the skin of your hands and knees until you have the moves down. Really fun climb and great view from the top. Apr 18, 2012
