Description:

This challenging two-pitch route can be done in one pitch, but it's not advisable unless you have a 70-meter rope. Fairly stiff for the 5.7 grade.

P1: At a left-facing corner, either climb a large crack on the left face (easier), or for full value, follow the corner with a variable crack and some balancy moves to a large ledge. 40', 5.7+

P2: From the ledge, follow a pretty orange corner up past blocks to a large roof. Traverse left under the roof, then continue up a vegetated left-facing corner past dirty ledges to the top. 60', 5.7+

Descent Options:

Rap from the anchors.

3 out of 5 stars Let's Face It

Lead it as single pitch with 70m rope. A lot of rope drag. Next time lead as multi pitch. Witnessed by Eric Boarman.
