This is the prominent orange/brown face directly in front of you when climbing the approach rungs. This route had old bolts on it when we developed the surrounding area, and it even shows up as a project in some old versions of the Maple guide. Unfortunately, pretty much all of the original bolts were questionable in quality and the route was never safely cleaned for climbing and was terribly loose and dangerous. To pay "homage" to the crew who put the original bolts in, we wanted to try to make this route worthy of its prominent location and aesthetic position. We spent nearly 3 days rebolting and cleaning. It got a complete facelift and new anchors. The result is it went from a dangerous nightmare to a really nice climb which should be quite popular. Sun until late afternoon. Stick clip!
The prominent orange/brown face directly above the climb up gully. It is on the left side of the narrow traverse that separates the Main wall from the Lair routes.
