4 out of 5 stars Fun and simple face climbing.

There are small features all over the entire face, and routes galore. Two crisscrossing cracks on the face makes for several variations as well. 5.9 is very generous rating.

To set up anchor, climb up Sunset Slab, then work your way over to the three anchors at the top of the face.

I suggest you start the route atop one of the rocks at the base, otherwise a fall at the start might hurt a bit.
