Tony calls this route vertical face climbing, but it's really more like steep 5.9 slab. Calling it face climbing implies that there are holds. ;)

Getting to the first bolt is a bit hairy, but otherwise it is a well-protected and fun climb. Sustained.

A small crack to the left of bolt-line provides an easier path around the bulge between bolts #2 and #3.

Beta Warning! Is it possible a crimp crumbled/broke just below the 2nd bolt? There is some fresh rock showing there. This climb seems like 5.9+ slab if you move 5 feet left below the 2nd bolt. Going directly up the bolt line felt like hard 5.10c/d for a few moves at the 2nd and 3rd bolts.
