Located on the Half-Face Boulder on the right side of the trail to the Oak Grove wall. From afar the rock looks like Half Dome. Up close it looks like a face with a big white dot as the eye, pointed top as the nose, a white streak for a mustache and the crack as its mouth. The route uses a a combination of crimps and finger jams on a thin crack running diagonally up and left to the arete. Then liebacking diagonally up and right on a few decent feet get you to a super easy top out. A fall from the top could be bad. This route could be better graded as 6a+.

Descent Options:

Easy down climb back and right from top out.
