Description

This is route to the right of #14 and unnumbered in the online LAM guide. Since #14 was called, "Unnamed, left of the nose", and this one is right of the nose, well, right of the nose is the Left Cheek, which is Spanish is Mejilla Izquierda.

Start in the slabby area to the right of the nose. Work your way up through the more blocky area on the nose's right side, then straight up to the anchor. Watch the abundant loose rock from the nose up.

Location

Easily identified by the prominent flat-bottomed nose/arete, just to this route's [climber's] left.

Protection

Use a standard rack to 3".

Set a gear anchor on top or use the two-bolt anchor.  If using the bolts for a toprope setup, a piece to redirect the rope out of the crack will help with friction.
