Description

Due to it's size and complexity the southwest face has been broken into three separate sections:

SW Face Left (Trespassers Wall) which extends from the far left to the Abstract Roller Disco Block.

Characterized by a large number of high-angle slab routes with generally good but crunchy rock due to a lack of traffic. Slab climbers will find memorable challenges from 5.8 to 5.12 in difficulty.

SW Face Center (The Solarium) which covers from right of the Abstract Roller Disco Block to near Feeling Groovy.

Relatively undeveloped until recently this quiet spot features a quick easy approach, nice views from it's elevated base and a nice selection of mostly slabby routes from 5.6 to 5.11c.

SW Face Right (Monkey Business Wall) which extends from near Feeling Groovy to The Paw on the right end.

The most popular spot on Little Hunk's southwest face this area offers a nice change of pace from the usual theme of slab climbing and features some quality crack and face routes from 5.7 to 5.10 in difficulty.
