About 8 feet left of the start to Saving Face, find a very small and not very obvious left-facing flake; it's about 6-8 feet up. Climb the face past this flake to a stance, then move onto a large ledge (crux). From there, go up past a short, right-facing flake to a crack. At the top of the crack, you will see the belay/rappel tree about 20 feet higher.

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


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. From there, walk right 35 feet and locate a right-facing corner that leads to a ledge about 20 feet up; that is Saving Face. Saving Grace is 8 feet or so left of that corner.


Standard 'Gunks rack and some small nuts such as RPs or something similar.

looks like the anchor tree has fallen down and hanging by its roots directly on the climb. Not sure how long it will hang there, but I'd probably not spend a lot of time standing underneath it, especially on a windy day.
