|This is a great bit of climbing. We saw it by chance and used it as a warm up for the rest of the day. Very solid and clean rock! Turns out there isn't anything else on the upper great face that's as hard. There was a pair of bolted lines in the middle of the face that we jumped on as well, did the same folks put those up? One on the right is about 10a and has 3 pitches, the last two pitches are trad hands and fingers to an awkward but stellar left facing dihedral with a finger crack. This is another 3-star route.The left hand bolt line goes up 70' and then stops (no more bolts, 9+ so far), so you must make a hairball traverse right to the other line to finish.|

Several criticisms of the previous postings:
None of the routes described above are on Lower Great Face. Tribal Regions is near the bottom of the Enclosure, much closer to Upper Great Face than LGF, while the routes Alan Searcy describes are on Upper Great Face, the three pitch climb he enthuses about being The Big Steep.
Tribal Regions is located near the bottom of The Enclosures.

|Three stars for pitch 1! One star for pitch 2. Pitch 2 is somewhat loose and crumbly, with the occasional rat's nest along the way. There is no reliable fixed anchor for pitch 1, bring midsize gear for the belay. The belay atop pitch 2 is very nice!|
