Description

Open Face is a tall (100 feet) open section of rock split by a large chimney/gash in the middle (Open Face, 5.5 R) and separated from the Orangutan Buttress to the right by another chimney (The Long Chimney, 5.3). Dandy Line (5.8) splits off from the Long Chimney part way up, and finishes to the right at the top left corner of Orangutan Buttress.

Be careful if climbing here; it is a popular spot for rapelling.

Getting There

Follow the trail along the cliff past Cramped Thumb Face to the obvious straight gash/chimney that extends from the base to the top of the cliff (Open Face, 5.5 R).

Unless something's changed recently, the bolts are about 10 feet right of the weakness that Open Face follows on the upper half of the wall. see this route: Open Face Slab May 1, 2016

Not sure how new the bolts are, but they aren't mentioned in the description. This route can be done as a sport or mixed sport/trad (although placements aren't great in mostly soft, flared rock). Obviously requires a 70m unless the belayer moves up to a small, uncomfortable ledge. Apr 30, 2016
