Stump Buttress Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Stump Buttress.
This area describes the south and west faces of Stump Buttress. Stump is a large rock formation that has few routes up the south and west faces, the main route being The Crow's Nest, a fun 5.9 crack climb. Those with an imagination could make the clean and steep west face go with some bolts. The west face is a bit chossier, but has been climbed as well.
Approach as for Hole in the Wall Canyon. As you walk into the canyon, you'll pass The Shield on your right. Keep heading down canyon until you're at the base of a talus field that leads to a large 300 foot buttress. This buttress is Stump.

Pitches 1 and 2 are shared with Crow's Nest. When you reach the narrow ledge on P2, traverse left to the bolted belay. From the belay, climb up and left, aiming for the finger crack. Pull through the bulge and continue with good gear and one bolt to the horizontal break, traverse left, and continue up the obvious finger crack to the anchor, 5.10+.Please do not continue above the anchor, as there are many massive blocks above that would come down very easily....[more] Browse More Classics in Colorado
