  • Description 

    A short practice aid climb just to the right of Gyro Captain. Take the overhanging diagonal crack up and right. Can be done all clean on excellent gear, however, the awkwardness might warrant the C2 rating. The first piece is the hardest to place.

    Freed by Caldwell in 1997; now called Mr. Stiffie, 13d.

    So, is it Mr. Stiffie, by T. Caldwell, .13d, via the direct start (aka Rob's direct start)? The new BoCan guide has the low left Mr. Stiffie at 14a, with the direct start. What is the line!?

    The theory is that a broken hold has upped the grade for Mr Stiffie to 14a from 13d. There is no new line, just an altered route. BTW Mr Stiffie should be its own route as it uses the arete more than the crack as it heads right along the upper section.
