Description [Suggest Change]

This is the face route that is just to the left of the chimney route. Over the years, this route's features have gotten smoother with erosion.

You can start as for the chimney and move onto the face. You could also start with a much harder start from the left over a bulge. Carefully smear your way up. The top out move felt like the crux.

It may be tougher for small kids. It is also used for guiding.

Location [Suggest Change]

On the right side of the south face.

Protection [Suggest Change]

To toprope, you need lengthy slings to extend from the pipe up top.

Fun route, delicate moves and a lot of smearing. Available for top-rope with anchor of cams and chocks. Nov 20, 2013
