BETA PHOTO: Face The Damage is a classic route on fantastic ro...


climb up a rampy bulge at the beginning of the climb to suspect looking (and sounding) but bomber holds. climb into the crack that trends right, using hand jams. at the top of the crack gain a quick rest on the bulge and trend left following the bolt line. One should skip a few bolts here to minimize rope drag. After some less quality rock climbing you will come to an anchor. Most choose to clip the anchor and continue the route for full value.

The second pitch is excellent, keep shaking out and find all the good rests. Some slabby moves guard the chains. Lower to the ground on a 70m rope.


This route starts just to the right of Catalyst (5.12c) which is the vertical short face just past the pull up bar. It starts on the right side of the bulge, although must now start left due to a key hold breaking off.


Pitch one 10 bolts, Pitch two 10 bolts. Be wary of the the first anchor. It's best to continue to the second anchor, or back up the first with additional draws.

The right bolt on the first anchor is the bad one, the left chain is the one you want to clip.

As of October 5 the spinning bolt before the crux (#6) and the suspect anchor bolt on the first pitch have been replaced.
