Description

This is a small face that lies just to the left of North Face. There are 2 old bolts above this face.

Per Steve Marr: R Face is one of the first graffiti laden craglets that you encounter when approaching the Quarries from the main parking area on Ricciuti Drive. It is a short, forty foot slab that offers a handful of moderate routes from 5.3 to 5.7. All but two of the climbs originate on the left side of the formation, while a pair of climbs and the descent route are found on the right side. Due to the fact that nearly every square inch of this wall seams to be covered with paint, none of the routes are particularly noteworthy.

Getting There

This is a fairly easy craglet to find, as it lies just left of the distinct North Face. It is somewhat broken in appearance.

Per Steve Marr: R Face is hard to miss. As you approach the quarry from the parking lot on Ricciuti Drive, R Face is the first one that you see. Look for a slabby, low angle face with something resembling an American flag painted in the center near the top, and the graffiti "SKAMS" on the right side. Just to the right of R Face is another short, steep face (S Wall). If you're on the other side of the quarry, find the overhanging Q Face, and walk around the right side until you're at the base of R Face.
