Face Off is a sport route on the face right of the Nick Of Time corner. An OK warm-up for the harder routes in the area.
Start at a 2-bolt belay anchor just right of the belay anchor for Nick Of Time and Sidekick. Climb up easy rock to a steep headwall and the first bolt. Move left and up (crux).

Rappel 95' back to the start, or continue with the second pitch of Stayin' Alive.

Easy warm up route. Did Stayin' Alive to make it a 2p climb.
