This route starts in the next corner to the left of Ripper. It ascends a series of juggy ledges for about sixty unremarkable feet to the anchors.
There is now a fun second pitch (FFA Dave Dick), with good views and rock up above Stigmata. Once at the Stigmata anchors, belay your partner up, and then climb up and left following bolts and a couple of gear placements to the top. 5.8


Left of Ripper. Starts in a corner/crack system.


Gear to 3"

The route that goes as a second pitch to Stigmata or its neighbor, Flayel Bop (5.7), is called Pandora's Box (5.8) Apr 20, 2015

The route above Stigmata goes almost to the top, has 3 bolts and a couple optional gear placements, and goes at 5.8. FFA Dave Dick Feb 1, 2015

Does anyone know the rating of the bolted route above stigmata?

EDIT - looks like 5.8. Feb 1, 2015

I was actually pleasantly surprised by this route. Lead it for a friend today, and while its no 5 star route, it protects well, and features climbing that is easy enough for a beginner, but is still enough climbing to make it fun for them. I'd recommend it as a first 5.7 lead for a beginning trad climber. Jan 22, 2015

Loose and dirty. A couple of 5th class moves at the start and end of the route with what is effectively 4th class movement in between makes this barely a single start for me (I'm feeling lenient tonight). Jun 9, 2014

I don't recommend anyone do this route on purpose. Loose rock and utterly boring climbing make this route a complete PASS. Aug 10, 2013
Beware of loose rock on this. I recommend your belayer stands under the overhang. Jul 15, 2013

I entered the route with the guidebook grade but it definitely felt more like 5.6 to me. Jun 5, 2011
