Description [Edit]

Truly good climbing, and truly runout. The moves are technical and aesthetic, rather than burley and insecure. A good problem to hang after getting up on Huston Crack or the 'Aid Crack" (which goes free at 10d).

Location [Edit]

This route climbs the technical face just right of the more obvious 'Aid Crack' on the lower part of the North Face of Cob Rock.

Protection [Edit]

Not much, if any. A TR can be set from the ledge above with some gear and cord.

The entire climb felt 5.11 as there are several cruxs throughout, especially at the start. The seam at the top might take 'small' RPs if I remember correctly (I seriously doubt it). This would be a bold lead as it probably would have to be climbed without gear, perhaps an awkward small cam placement periodically (again, I doubt it). Face Route makes for a fun late day adventure as it will leave you feeling complete and energized as it did me. Most of the moves involve balancy, intricate, and technical foot work on small insecure edges. May 18, 2008

Bring small TCUs (couple C3 00s are useful) and some wires. Bold lead certainly, but the climbing eases up after the first 15 feet. Sep 17, 2010
