Some fun face moves. Shares anchors with If We Bolt It...


Third route on wall, just right of obvious crack.


Mostly bolts with short gear section. Chain anchors.

5 bolts, no gear necessary as the crack section is on easy ground. If you insist, try a 1" cam.

Not much 5.10 climbing on this one. Maybe 2 moves? The crack referred to is on 5.6 territory.

I counted 6 bolts, the one just under the chains is kind a weird, probably should have been a foot lower for shorter people or something, but it's just as easy to just step up to the anchor. I didn't lead this, but would have to reccommend at least one gear placement because a slip would be a grounder no doubt.

The face about 5 ft right of the start can be toproped too for some fun ~11a moves, a piece can be placed as a directional if desired. Looks like it's been climbed before as it looked like there was some cleaning done.

For gear in the crack: bring some passive pro - finger size to larger nuts are far better than any cam on this route. Though the crux comes early and ends quickly, I still thought this route was fun. Even the movement on the easier ground was entertaining.
