BETA PHOTO: The 2 start options for Santa's Stairmaster.


The pleasant sweeping arête to headwall climb is bolted friendly for easy lead purposes to get to the top of the wall. Great positions and fun moves. It's easy to make the crux up high harder than necessary.


The left side of the outside corner/arête that delineates Hornets Nest slab from the Dihedral area.


bolts to chains. (May want to place a large nut or mid size cam after 1st bolt on the RIGHT Start Variation.)

It's a mostly easy climb, 5.6 plus except for one 5.8 move at the crux
