Starting up Mask of the Devil
This is a fairly straight forward moderate face climb with a difficult slab finish. Start at the top of a long, slanting rock. The opening move is a bit tricky. Continue up over nice plates to a ledge; the climb meanders a bit through the main section. Once on the ledge, climb straight up past the last bolt on micro holds and smears. To avoid the crux and make this a cruiser 5.7, clip the last bolt and finish up and right along a short crack. Rappel to descend.
This is the fourth bolt line, counting from the climber's left.
5 bolts, bolted anchor

Fun climbing up plates to a balancy finish that's much easier that appearances suggest. Take care clipping the 2nd bolt or risk hitting the ground.
The anchors on this are poorly located and will trash your rope if lowering off or toproping. Best to extend the anchors and have the last person rap off.
