The Forest Service as closed all areas in Mount Lemmon until November 1, 2020 because of recent forest fire activity. Climbing is not permitted at this time.
Less-than-vertical crimping leads up and past the first bolt where one must decipher a sequence to obtain a small ledge. Clip the second bolt and stretch your fingers before pulling a plated bulge with larger but less-than-ideal holds. After this the climb significantly eases in difficulty while increasing in quality. Scamper up featured, undulating rock to the chains.
St. Stephen is the second route from the left. To the left is Baba Rum Raisin and to the right is Be Here Now. St. Stephen is the bolt line immediately right of the tree that encroaches upon the wall.
Approximately 7 bolts to chains. Some may find a stick clip useful as the first bolt is rather high and the sequence is not obvious.
Bolts and top-anchors updated by CASA in 2016.
