Description 

There is another small, fairly clean face on which to play if you are looking for a bit more climbing during your visit to Mill Creek Crag. After you climb Freeway, you can do a top rope with a bit of swing potential on the face around the arete to the left. There is a balancy, barn door potential crux low and a thinnish move up higher just before the ledge. You can continue up the 5.10 face below the anchors (past the Bugaboo pin) to top out.

One final thing, the dihedral to the left may be leadable.

Location 

This is on the face around the arete to the left of Freeway.

Protection 

Use a TR from the anchors for Freeway.

Note, there is no fixed anchor on the ledge 40 feet up.
