Oval Concepts makes a nice stem, the R710, that you can rotate up or down by a big margin. I use it to lower my road bars for time trials, but it would work just as well raising bars. Mine is very short, so it's probably only good for an 1-1.5 inch adjustment, but a longer stem would give you proportionally more vertical adjustment. You do have to torque the heck out of the locking nut, but then it performs flawlessly.
Look and Ritchey make analogous products.
