This face lies just to the right of P Face. It is also known as the Knight Face. Its base is one of the nicer places here to sit and enjoy while not actually climbing. This is a really nice piece of rock which can heat up during hot temperatures. In fact, sticky rubber has been known to melt on this little face during the peak of summer. This is a great place during colder weather. There is a large ring at the top of the right side of the face. Yellow Knight and Knight Line are educational experiences for dime sized edge climbing.

A beer for anyone who doesn't already climb 5.11 who can flash Yellow Knight.

Getting There 

This wall may be one of the easier ones to find, since it does not require approach from above. This is the southernmost craglet here. Its smooth triangular face with a left-facing dihedral-like feature identifies it.
