This description is for the "direct" variation. I have not climbed the standard 2 pitch version but it looks good as well.

Start on Fear of Flying. Where Fear of Flying busts left, head straight up through the bulge via a steep lieback (crux). Continue through the right trending ramp then finish at the top of P2 Steppin' Stone.

Be ready for horrible rope drag if you're climbing in 1 pitch.

Rap down Steppin' Stone (2 single rope raps) or climb to the Summit (5.6R) and rap down the west side.


Start is same as Fear of Flying


.5"-2". Many slings, one protection bolt at the top.
