This is a really fun line on the elegant L Face. It is the obvious line on the face...it just begs to be climbed, so much so that sometimes you just forget to put on your climbing shoes and you dance up.
Take the left-facing, wide, layback crack. You may be able to jam it, but it seemed less facile. Fire up for 3/4 the way. Get a great rest. Fire up and left for the top.
Note: the bottom part of this route has become quite slippery due to paint. It may exceed the 5.6 rating for some.
This is the obvious line on the face that begs to be climbed via laybacking.
This can be led with wide gear with a PG-13 bit at the top or a TR for better security.
