AMH getting ready for the crux.


This nose climb starts on the beautiful blunt arĂȘte that is, in profile, the bearded face that looks like the GOD in much western art (as seen from the parking area). An overhanging start, clip the first bolt and move up and left past an early crux. The more difficult portion of this climb is bolted; the gear section is mostly 5.6 climbing (needed to get you to the top of this beautiful structure). To descend rappel (or lower off) the route.


Southern arĂȘte of The Face of God.


7 bolts protect the lower section like a sport route, small-medium cams protect the upper easy part with no problem.
