Description Suggest change

The Main Face starts at the 3-foot step up to the base of Intertwine and ends at the right side of the practice face. It sees a lot of traffic from leaders and top ropers, alike, as it offers the highest concentration of moderate climbs. Although the area sees a reasonable amount of sun, the right side stays wet longer than the rest of the cliff (and longer than any rock in the state, probably).

Getting There Suggest change

Walking north along the cliff base, you'll know you're at the Main Face when you step up to the rock shelf at the base of the cliff, or by looking up at the chockstone roof in the middle of the wall.
