  • Description 

    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.
