Description 

In between the dihedral and the arete is a fine little face climb. Unlike most easier routes in SB, it's fairly thin and doesn't have a lot of thank god ledges.

Protection 

There is a bolted anchor at the top.

A surprisingly fun climb with lots of possible of variations. I may have overlooked a bolt up top, but anchor building for rappel took a bit of work to keep me from having a sketchy start to the rap. (One high bolt + #1 and #3 cams did the trick well.)

Staying on the arête to the left, in the center of the face on this climb, and the lieback on the right all felt the same grade to me, in the .8 range. I'm probably just a wuss though.
