Description Suggest change

Just another Pretty Face is a great thin, balancey face climb at the far end of Potash Road. It is located immediately left of a thin seam called "Chris-Cross," and can be identified by a first bolt 25 feet off the deck. The line arcs gently to the left and then finally heads up and then back right to the anchors. Tiny edges and sandy nubbins for the feet, and lots of off balance long reaches make for great fun on this pitch. The book lists the crux as between bolts 3 and 4, but I found the climbing to be pretty cruxy from bolt 3 right to bolt 6.

Protection Suggest change

Six bolts/pitons to a two bolt anchor. Runout to first bolt - you can protect this by climbing up the neighboring crack, placing a friend, traversing and clipping the first bolt, then back-cleaning the friend, but why bother? If you are not comfortable soloing the 5.8 terrain to the first bolt, you probably will struggle on this climb.
