This short climb is at the very toe of the Schultz's Ridge buttress. Look for the shallow corner with 3 bolts.

Make some moves on large holds to reach the first bolt. Clip it and then mantle onto a small ledge in the corner. The second bolt is difficult to reach from this stance if you're short. You can get some optional gear in the crack (thin) if you want. The crux is getting to the 3rd bolt and then it gets easy to the anchors. If you need beta just remember that the climb is called Superstem, not Superlieback.


Park at a long pullout on the left, 0.2 miles after Manure Pile. Walk through the forest to the low point on Schultz's Ridge.


3 bolts, 2 bolt anchor

I think this is a great climb! Really fun, very unique, and you will never see anyone on it. I felt a yellow alien was helpful. There are only three bolts, but they are perfectly placed and are really exactly where you need them... and the falls are clean. Definitely worth your time to play on this one!

I originally cleaned and led this without bolts, around 1988 or so.

"ski" placed the bolts shortly after.
