Overview
The second pitch of The Sting is one of those old-school 5.9+ pitches that will get your attention with tricky, hard climbing and a scary traverse left to a mantel. A long undercling traverse pitch above and a thin, technical crack, leads to a huge runout on relatively easy slab (or an escape right). Stingwink, a great linkup, starts by climbing The Sting, then instead of heading up the final runout slab, traverse the roof and finish on the final two pitches of Hoodwink.
