Description 

Climb the right-facing corner to its top and a large, dirt covered ledge. Once on the ledge, you will see an obvious, right-facing flake within arms reach that leads to a short seam; Saving Face climbs the face 6 feet or so right of that flake to a thin horizontal and a very small, short, and indistinct left-facing corner. Move up past this corner (crux) then go straight to the pine tree.

In 2011, the anchor tree fell onto and over the top sections of Saving Grace and Saving Face.


Location 

The best way to find this might be to find the White Pillar, walk back right past the obvious hanging left-facing corner of Moxie, until you see a right-facing corner that leads up to an arching flake. That is the start.

The large pine tree that marked the finish to this climb and Saving Grace fell down and it is completely blocking the upper part of both routes.
