You can rig natural anchors to hang only the face. Using the top bolts for "Dirty Rotten Scoundrel" will swing into that corner; rope can be redirected onto face from little bent pine or pieces in that ledge or above.

4 out of 5 stars Great climb

This was a good climb, this area at pilot is awesome, you can climb here all day and not hit a bad route, they're a bit short but still great climbs.

4 out of 5 stars Challenging face

Started towards the corner and worked left up the face. Difficult part for me was the horizontal finger crack to the diagonal ridge. Just needed to slow down and find good foot placements.

4 out of 5 stars Dream come true.

It took being shown the starting move, which to me is the hardest part, and a lot of training for a long time, and today was the day. Maybe this line will get its own anchors.
