Description

There is lots of loose rock above the right side of this face. To its left is the L Face. The climbing here was aesthetic in some ways and lends the sense you are climbing something a bit bigger. Additional graffitti has detracted from the ambience. With the big fill-in, it is much easier to access the climbing here. 200 feet of dirt sure helps. No dangling above water anymore.
