This route is directly left of "The Face" and starts on another thin face with climbable holds on it. Goes straight up on solid but small holds.


A crashpad. Many nasty rocks on this landing.

Scott - Many of the Flagstaff problems you've recently added to the database are long overdue additions, so good job. However, the problem you are describing here is not Kaptain Face, but rather Little Sloper Boy, which - if you've done it - is more like V2 or V3.

Kaptain Face (FA: Neil Kaptain, 1985) begins at the funky undercling and adjacent crimp on the left side of the start for Round Pebble, does a couple funky moves (most people match on a sloping corner hold) directly up to the good edge at 9 feet, then tops straight out left of Round Pebble on small crimps passing an obvious toothy pebble at approx. 16 feet on your way to the top, avoiding the round pebble and the slot, out right.

The problem's over for all intents and purposes when you grap the obvious toothy pebble up high, but a few pads would be wise when the actual topout is 20+ feet.
