DescriptionThis climb presents a fairly distinct crux in that there is really only one or two moves at the grade. The rest is easier. Short climbers might find it more challenging, however, as the crux is on good holds that could be reachy for them.
Climb up into the corner, protecting whenever possible, and reach up to surprisingly good holds on the right side. Move up into the corner and easier climbing to the top and a bolted anchor.
LocationThe upper section of Pilot Knob has two distinct climbable rocks. The left one is arrived at from just below, climbing any of the lower tier's pitches. The obvious, left-facing corner above is Touch and Go. Stress Fracture is the hand crack just a meter or two left of that corner.
