Description:

Tricky, slabby, smooth start. Protect with a smallish cam. Clip the bolt, tackle the roof, then it is all positive hand jams from there. Traverse from a #3 cam out right and rap "Just Another Pretty Face."

3 out of 5 stars Tow Away Zone

Tough slab beginning leads to an easy hand crack. One bolt and a double 00 Metolius Master Cam protected the unique start, but it could use another bolt. Stay right of the overhang above and use the under-clings and stem your way through the difficulties

Bouldery start is way cool. New anchors at the top.

4 out of 5 stars slick

Fell several times right off the ground on a blue TCU. Finally laybacked past the slick start to the bolt. Fun roof followed by a 5.7 finger to hand crack. Really aesthetic, varied climb. It has its own chain anchors now. Bring a standard rack.
