[Hide Comment] This route lives up to its name. Once the crack ends, you need faith that the holds and the gear will keep coming. Good route. Jan 18, 2008

[Hide Comment] Finally got around to leading Faith, and it's really a fun line. Like Jay said in the prior comment, the pro thins out once you leave the crack, but it's there where you need it. Feb 17, 2008
