The Face of Tammy Faye

This route is shown clearly in the attached Photo. To reach it, approach the thin Wall's E. Side and orient according to the photo. This climb is on the far right end of the wall, the second major crack system from the right- climbing upward to reach the right hand shoulder of a dome atop of this wall. Climb the crack system using mostly face holds upward toward the top, hooking right at the end. The climbing is reasonably solid and secure. The route is traditionally rated (Vogel guide) as 5.8, but it seems that everything at Thin Wall is over-graded and this felt fairer at 5.7.
I did not lead this route, but it appeared to be doable with a light standard rack. It is also a good solo *8_).

The protection is fine, cams in the parallels; though there is no bolt at the top as marked in some guides, there is no need for one.
