This route is called "Top Rope Face One" in the newest guide by Haas and Schneider. They gave it a star so we decided to climb it after doing Darker is Better. The start, up a crack, is fun and sticking to the arete at the top is also interesting. In between, the climbing is easy and easily forgettable.


This route climbs the backside of the block with the painted "67". It is about 10 feet right of Darker is Better. At the start, a hand crack leads up to the slot formed by the block. Follow the arete from here. Walk off via a gully to climber's right.


We top roped it off our gear anchor for Darker is Better as suggested in the guidebook. However, it can easily be led on gear with a short runout at the top. There are no fixed anchors and a standard rack should suffice.
