Face-Off climbs a steep face just off the arete on the left side of the crag. While steep and tricky at first, some inobvious finger slots bring the difficulty down significantly. Finishes on a short slab.


This is the furthest route left on the crag.


Half a dozen draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

Really fun climb but while leading I fell when foot hold broke off below 3rd bolt, and partner peeled also with handhold peeling off! Lots of crumbling under feet and hands makes for weary climbing, I think I will try it again staying more right, once climbed a bit and cleaned off it will be interesting to see how this climb unfolds! Bring helmet/safety goggles for now!
