Kathleen heading into the crux of In Your Face.
This is agreat route with powerful, dynamic moves. The crux is about from halfway up the route to the belay with large moves at the top. It's the farthest route right under the large roof.
7 bolts to a 2 bolt lower off. It might have chains, I can't remember.

Good route for someone who boulders. Great fun. Look for the vulcan hold undercling for the left hand when climbing past the last bolt and over the bulge. Some people skip the last clip to save energy. It is possible to get a good stance with the feet to clip, but may not work so well for taller folks.

I disagree that this is a "boulderer's route". This is all about power endurance, and climbing efficiently enough to have juice for the final move (crux). I think its only a V3ish crux, which most people who get on this route will quickly figure out, but it is very low percentage when pumped.

I'm with ac, this route required some good power enduro for me to redpoint...but I guess compared to a lot of newer rifle routes it is "short"...
Ultra fun in any case!

I liked the way the route climbed, but it was a greasefest.
