The crux of The Easy Face is seen with a rope glid...

Description 

This route is also on the same formation as Swing On In. It is the face just to the right of swing on in. It ends in the exact same way as Swing On In. The crux is just before the ledge near the top. below that the climbing is easy. You will hit a point where the rock gets more vertical and follows a few chicken heads and knobs up to a vertical finger crack which leads you to the ledge and top of Swing On In.

Location 

To the left of Swing On In. On the face that forms the outside block of the body crack.

Protection 

It would be possible to lead this face gear down low should be good, and the crux could be protected with a small nut or two in the finger crack. I would be extra careful with gear because this face is the perfect example of the way Terelj has solid looking rock that is not so solid. Do not place gear on the orange crumbly rock it is useless.
