DescriptionAwesome face climbing on clean, white granite. Reasonably protected.
Start at the same place as the Lieback and traverse right onto the face. Climb this face until reaching the "bathtub ledge" which marks the top of the Lieback's first pitch. Continue in a hand-sized crack up and right--40 feet higher, and about 25 feet to the right, is a two bolt anchor. Rappel from here or follow the last pitch of Claustrophobia Crack to the top.
If rappelling with one rope, there is an intermediate rappel station on the face below (it will take you two raps to get down).
LocationClimbs the clean face just a few feet right of the Lieback (between the Lieback and Claustrophobia Crack).
