Description

Facade is the farthest left and easiest route on the main Power Tower wall, starting about 15' left of "High Cost of Climbing" (and thus 15' left of the large pine tree at the base of the wall).

P1 - Follow a slightly right-leaning lower-angle crack to a large ledge (110', 5.7)

P2 - Continue directly up a steeper crack from the belay and then follow it rightwards to meet up with High Cost of Climbing (90', 5.8)

P3 - Head straight up the leftmost of a pair of twin slightly-flaring cracks left of the right-angling ramp of Sword of Damocles. You will notice the bolt ladder to your right on that route. (60', 5.9)

P4 - Finish a short pitch up easier but dirtier terrain to the 2-bolt anchor atop Sword of Damocles and the rim of Power Tower wall. (40', 5.7)

Protection

Standard rack up to #3 camalot. This route is generally well protected.
