Description [Suggest Change]

A classic overlooked face climb with thought provoking moves on a beautiful orange wall with unique holds. The start is a little slabby and awkward but quickly turns to excellent climbing on bullet hard sandstone. The crux is met at about 2/3 height

Location [Suggest Change]

Continue down the trail to the second point at which you can turn left towards the cliff. Located just to the right of the bolted corner "Fairweather Friend"

Fooled myself into thinking I had done the crux but there is a tricky 11- section a bolt or so below the real crux of the route. For me it was a big move to a jug just above the clip. Took a solid whip on the move the first time. Super fun face climbing!

The bottom 1/2 of the route was in the shade, top part was cooking in the sun when we did it late morning in May. Jun 11, 2014
