BETA PHOTO: Scarface requires a lot of webbing for top roping ...


This is an easy route. It starts with small pockets and ledges. The holds get bigger and sharper as you go.


Scarface is about 50 feet to the left of Body Surfin'. It is just to the left of another cave/chimney and about 20 feet to the right of the gully used to reach the top for setting top-ropes.

Looked easy (5.4 - 5.5) from the ground but that juggy face is deceptive. Felt clearly 5.6 to me and worth doing for the grade if you're in the area. Agree with Benandstuff - the "odd shaped crack" (flared chimney?) adds interest.

This is a fun and juggy climb. Easy bolted anchor access (using the Pool Hall gully) makes this a good climb for groups.

The odd-width crack at the left start makes this route stand out. For climbers of the 5.6 grade, this crack is exceptionally technical. I would say it is 5.8+ climbing, at least. You really have to think about how you are going to grab the holds, where your feet are, etc.
