Description 

The main cliff is the extremely blank face approximately 100 feet tall and slightly overhanging. This could house the hardest lines in N.B and with work could have a few test pieces on it. It starts at the escape gully/cave and continues across the black face until the rock becomes blocky and loose.
Rappelling the main face can be done from a few small ceders on top of the cliff, your anchor should be within 10 feet of the top to insure the ends touch, TIE KNOTS a 60M rope just reaches. This is a fantastic and completely hanging rappel after the first 10 feet.

Getting There 

The only awesome 100' black face you can’t keep your eyes off.

This is the longest route in Greenhead. Start on the ground, below and to the climber’s right of the cave. Follow 4 bolts up a face, trending left into the cave (5.6ish) **There are 2 bolts to the climber’s right of the cave that protect the crux. The second (higher) bolt can be “reachy” so if you’re not concerned about the onsight, feel free to rappel and pre-hang a draw or even extend it if you’re really short.**Climbing out of the cave (crux) is some of the best climbing in the city.
