Ben finishing up the Gorgeous Face


This route starts on the bulge just to the left of the Gorgeous Crack. Climb the bulge to a cool small slot (gear). Continue up, clip the bolt and crank through the crux. After the crux, traverse 5 feet right, crossing over the Gorgeous Crack and continue up the blank face above. Use delicate moves and long reaches to gain the horizontals above. Finishes on the same anchors as the Gorgeous Crack and Too Many Tacos.


Located to the Left of the Gorgeous Crack and to the right of Too Many Tacos


Standard rack. The low crux was originally PG-13, but is now protected by a bolt.
