Nameless Face is a high quality pitch of climbing which adds an extra 100 feet to the Psycho Tower's regular route, Psycho-Path. The crux is getting off the ground at the first couple of bolts, but the climbing will keep your attention all the way to the anchors.
Instead of the 4th class scramble to the exposed saddle below the west face, climb the bolted face on the south side of the tower to anchors on the saddle, which is the start of Psycho-Path.
Follow the approach trail for the Psycho Tower. Look for the bolted lower portion of the tower (the side facing the road).
7 or 8 bolts; a 0.5 cam between the last two bolts was pretty nice to have.

Outstandingly good, Red Rocks-style, face climbing. Definitely worth doing to make this tower route a bit longer and meatier. Tough warmup though, since it's vertical crimping right off the ground, with the crux around the first two bolts.
