Shit Face's new bolts in summer 2011 (still shiny,...


There are numerous variations, from about 5.9 to 5.11a, depending on where on the face you decide to climb.

Climb an overhnag to a small ledge, then up the center of the face to another small overhang. Reach over the hang to find good holds, then step right and up and climb the right side of a short face to the top. The outside corner to the right is off if you want the full 5.10b grade.


TR, or 3 bolts on face (new in 2011). There is a 2 bolt anchor at the top, however they are not rap hangers.


On the narrow face just left (north) of the Weeping Wall. You can reach the top of the cliff from the top of the Practice Face with some 4th class scrambling.

My friend tore the big bush (living? dead? no longer a distinction) off the ledge between the third and fourth bolts today. He made it look like an accident. The rope runs much smoother now, and the small tree is still intact.

Unless I'm missing something there's just 3 bolts to the anchor now. There's another bolt above the anchor. Not sure what it's for, I didn't get a close enough look to see what was going on up there.
