Description

Climbs the high quality patina face to right of huge dihedral (Arc de Triomphe) for four 100 foot pitches before ending in some grainy, flaky rock. Mostly 5.7 with a couple of distinct cruxes that go at around 10a. It was put up with a hand drill on lead, so the bolts are well spaced, but there when you need them. When this route went up in Fall 2007, our original objective was the Arc de Triomphe dihedral, but the rock quality was so good on the face, we detoured. We never really named the route, but we really liked the name "Unknown Face Climb to Nowhere" given to it on the Arc de Triomphe topo, so we're sticking with it!

Location

This is the face climb to the right of Arc de Triomphe.

Protection

If I recall correctly, there are around four to five bolts on every 100 foot pitch and two rap rings at each station.
