Another way of doing things: lately, when I am taking inexperienced climbers up Face Lift, I climb the pictured variation. This variation involves pulling up early on the first pitch and belaying from a comfortable ledge. The second pitch bypasses the usual belay stance altogether and climbs straight up from the route's fourth bolt and passes another bolt to gain an obvious ledge with trees. While this is seriously runout for the leader, it is much less likely to produce a serious pendulum for the second. I believe that this variation follows the upper portion of the route known as "Tigger Treat" (5.8) in the Edward's Guidebook.
