Overview
Stone Groove is a short but fierce climb that would likely remain a hidden gem save for its proximity to Lunatic Fringe. Only 30? off the ground the climbing eases substantially, and if it were not for a short, steep, and wild finish on jugs, even the beautiful first section would likely not be a frequented route. But that first section of right-leaning crack under a small roof, with desperate jamming and liebacking to a difficult crux, is very memorable!
