  • Description 

    This is the easiest route at the stumbling Block. It could be used as a warm-up for other climbs in the area.

    The climb goes up a big crack. Darren Mabe says to rack up to a #4 Camalot in his book, but the crack is big enough to take a #5 near the top. You can stem up much of the route. The hardest part is near the top.

    Location 

    This is just to the left of the route Sabaki. It ascends a wide crack in a dihedral. You get down by walking to the left on the Decolletage ledge.

    Protection 

    Standard rack up to #5 Camalot, mainly cams. There are no anchors at the top. Build an anchor. There is a crack at the top that takes mid-size cams.

    Correct, Jay, my gear lists were pre-C4, so an old #4 Camalot or C4 #5 would be good to have. This and its neighbor to the right are good moderate crack routes; a rarity in Clear Creek.
