Directions:  All the climbs in this area are located on the ledge above the Thin Air face. Usually they are accessed from the top, walking down the trail to the climber's-right of the buttress. Stage Fright is the leftmost climb.
Description: A very serious undertaking. Stage Fright has only had 3 lead ascents in its history, none of which involved a ground-up ascent - placing the gear on the lead!
    Pitch 1: Follow the lower crack as far as it goes placing a few RP's. Follow a thin dike with difficulty to a thin crack which is followed to the end. At the ledge traverse right to the Airation tree.

Gear: wires and a few small cams up to 1.25"
Descent: 
History:  July 1985 - FFA: Hugh Herr; FA: Sam Sargent, Todd Eastman August 1975
