Seasonal Closure MORE INFO >>>


Climb the first half of Face Off (or Nick of Time if you would like). Once on the main intermediate ledge, climb the short overhanging wall on pinches and side-pull flaring cracks, following 5 bolts to a two-bolt top anchor.

Sustained, technical and crimpy for the first 4 bolts.


In Sport Land, right of Sidekick and straight up from the main intermediate ledge of Face Off and Nick of Time. Route #7 in the ?beta photo?.


Face Off for ~4 bolts and another 5 bolts on Hard Times.
Optional, medium cam(s) for the last easier 10-15 feet.
Two-bolt top anchor.

I didn't think it was so sketchy of a climb. The bolts seemed well placed. Good little problem in otherwise easy terrain.

I thought the clips were a little iffy. Not bad, just pumpy. I think in time this one might hold the grade, or very nearly. But only time will tell. Regardless, I think it is harder than Sidekick becuase the feet are 'worse' so to speak. It requires more faith anyway.
