  • 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.


    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.


    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.
