Description 

Park at the Woodyard (the actual woodyard, not the MSG boulder) in the big dirt pullout on the right side of the road with the long iron gate. This is about half a mile down past the El Cap meadow. Steal Your Face is the first problem you'll see on the left. It faces the old logging road.

Mantel into a scoop and get stemmed as high as you can on the right-trending ramp, then lunge up and right to a pinch/sidepull at the lip. The topout requires some groveling. Might be a good idea to clean off the top beforehand and scope out where the holds are up there.

Classic problem with varied moves and perfect landing. One of my favorite V4's in the Valley.

The unnamed "V3" just to the right is several grades harder than that. Don't know if something broke or it's just graded wrong in the book.
