Description

Face Value is a direct start to Fleet Feet. While it would be a dangerous lead it can be easily toproped from the first pitch anchors of Fleet Feet. Start a few feet to the left of Fleet Feet right above the obvious upward pointing flake/block. Crimp and smear your way up the blank face (5.10) to the overlap. Pull the overlap on good holds. Make one more move to reach a short crack and step up to some decent feet below the bolt. Use tiny crystals and crimps to move up to easier ground and the anchors.

Protection

1 protection bolt, ring anchors. Could place a small cam or nut a short ways below the bolt.

It's because of that upward pointing flake below the start of the route. I think even a short fall onto it before reaching the potential pro would be pretty bad. A few bouldering pads might make it more reasonable. Jan 14, 2014

This is a fun climb to TR after climbing Fleet Feet. Very technical and sustained climbing the entire length of the route. If you were to lead it there are two opportunities for gear before the lone bolt on route. Where do you think this route gets the X rating? Getting to the bolt or blowing it up high above the bolt?

I think the guides are wrong. The bolt on Face Value is directly below the Fleet Feet anchors not well to the right of it as shown in the books. Clipping the bolts on Fleet Feet would not make much sense. Jan 11, 2014

Anyone know more history on this route? The Kelley and Selected guides show the route go climbers right after clipping the bolt to the 1st bolt on Fleet Feet. We went straight up the face to the anchors (on TR), as this description seems to describe. Jan 8, 2014
