BETA PHOTO: Thin Crack on the left, Ken's Face and Wide Crack ...
Ken's Face is the last area of climbing at X Rock. The crack climbing isn't great but the face climbing is quite good.
Follow the trail till the very end. Approach time is around 15 minutes. To set up top ropes, the easiest approach is to go up the "hard to see" trail that veers left about 50 feet before Dos XX. Once at the top of Dos XX, follow the faint trail around the gully to the top of Ken's Face.

Chains have been added to the Ken's Face anchor to make pulling your rope easier. All other anchors on this formation have heinous rope drag.
