Stop! is a chunky looking climb that thankfully climbs a little better than it looks. The description in the guidebook by the first ascensionist describes the start of the climb: "If you must, climb a rotten groove...."
I suppose they must have cleaned it out a little and we a little more, because it's not so bad, really.
That groove is actually kind of an awkward overhanging rounded slot and does not protect particularly well, but the moves are good. Do beware to wear sleeves and something on your shoulders (but nothing expensive).
Work your way out the awkward slot, facing left into the corner, then up over the bulge and left, then quickly back right into better rock and easier moves. Head up to the top of the wall with better gear and belay. There is a downclimb just North of the climb in the corner.
This climb lies just uphill from the clean South-facing wall of Skip 'n' Go Naked
. A bulging roof in a right facing corner has a wide crack through it. This is the route.
A light standard rack from stoppers to 3".
