About Southeast Face: El Capitan:

The Southeast Face or "right side" boasts many of the steepest big wall climbs on El Cap. The quality of rock varies from excellent on the trade routes to abysmal on some of the horror shows right of Zodiac. The really marvellous thing about the Southeast Face is that it's almost impossible to find a bad route here! No matter what you climb, you are guaranteed a superb big wall experience.
