Description 

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.

Getting There 

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.

This is a variation to the third pitch of the The Crow's Nest.Climb P1 and P2 of The Crow's Nest to the pedestal below the roof. You can belay anywhere from below the chimney to this pedestal. From the pedestal, climb the nice finger crack up and left to the top of the pillar. Clip the lone bolt, and step left continuing up the obvious weakness. Climb interesting features until you can start trending right at a flared, broken crack. Pass this section and continue up and right, aiming for the summit ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
