Description [Edit]

This is the face seen above the parking lot.

One of the coolest things about this face is that there are numerous routes up to the same ledge with a two bolt anchor and rap rings. Lead any of the routes and fix a 60 meter single line off the anchors. You now have an easily adjustable belay anchor and rap line. Tick off all the routes on the face in short order....all while 2 minutes from the parking lot!

Getting There [Edit]

The from the parking lot, walk toward the west face past any intervening trees. Spot your route, and make a beeline for it.

You can rap from the chains over the water cracks with three very short raps linking anchors on two routes. This gets you to the gentle slab below the water cracks. Two single rope rappels gets you (with a 60 meter) to a decent spot where you still need to do a little slippery down-slabbing with a potential tumble/slide if you blow it.
