About Thin Air Face:

The popular open face located to the right of the Prow, and ending at the obvious chimney of Standard Route. This wall contains one of the most popular routes in the White Mountains, Thin Air (5.6), which is a must-do for any visiting climber. It is also the home of many high quality face climbs such as the well protected Still in Saigon (5.8) and the technical and burly Missing Link (5.10a). Standard Route is an adventurous alternative that will have a 5.7 leader pushing his limits.
