Stump Buttress from the valley floor.

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 route follows the obvious dihedral on the south face of Stump Buttress. The climbing is 5.8 and 5.9 all the way, with some sections of devious pro. There are anchors at the top of P1 and P3, so you need two ropes to get off.P1: Start at the base of the west face of Stump Buttress.
