Description 

This is a slab high on the rock, with a few one pitch routes. It lies between the Godzilla Face and Eagle Pinnacle.

Getting There 

Climb the Escalator past the crux, and then continue up and right on easy ground for a few hundred feet to a large ledge. Walk right to the base of the face. The climbs all finish on top of the rock.
