Description 

A clean, northwest facing face about 250 feet high with steep but featured rock of good quality at a consistent angle. The features diminish higher up. Cracks are common but may need cleaning up, as traffic is minimal to nonexistent due to a difficult approach.

Getting There 

Description given for Card Deck takes you directly to the bottom of Ace's Face.
