Half way up the Butter Face.


This is a great problem I cleaned up and sent in Spring of 2007. It seemed new to me as I had to trundle a little choss to expose a key hold at the top. If you know of an earlier ascent, please chime in. Anyway....

Sit start in a large hueco in the center of the yellow face with underclings and make reachy throws up and right. It has sustained and interesting movement.


At the parking lot, look due North and find the two largest boulders, the one on the left has a noticeable yellow face that faces West. There are several decent problems in this area.


Pad, spotter (can be a dog).

Does anyone know the name of the problem that goes up the arete just to the right of Butter Face?

I think it might be called Hairy Lip.
