This face climb is sandwiched between two prominent crack routes: Spring Cleaning and Major. A thin crux sequence leads to exciting and fun climbing up an arete. There are several rappel stations near the top of the climb.
3 bolts and perhaps a few pieces of gear

Although you're not likely to travel to the south face for the sole purpose of climbing this route, it's a nice warm-up for the more difficult face climbing offered in the area. As it is, I can't climb 5.11 or 5.12 slab/face, so I found this to be a nice challenge in and of itself. The crux features balancy friction, without much in the way of small edges to pull on. Bolts are right where you need 'em.

Very good description of the route - it could also read: memorable finish above the slab below and the previous 5/16" button and 1/4" bolt!
