BETA PHOTO: The fun face.


Due to broken holds and lichen, this description differs from the older guidebooks to the area.

Start up the short, easy crack and before reaching the ledge, move right to a pocket-like jug and a flake or two that will help you reach the large shelf above. Mantle up onto the shelf and stand up to reach the start of a high and somewhat spooky flake system. Climb up the flakes to gain the slopey lip and make a fun mantle over the top.


This route climbs the face at the far right end of the Upper Cliffs just before reaching the trail to the top.
