You can get a better idea of the angle of it with ...


Stand start the lower angled face using finesse, balance, and technique to reach the slopey lip with your left hand, and then begin a sloper-mantle sequence.


Looking at the photo, this climb starts on the right side of the pad and more or less trends up the center of the face depicted by the shadow of the tree.

Really awesome line. Typical North Shore sandbagging....this problem is considerably harder than V3.

Sorry. Felt like the crux of a 5.11+ delicate face climb to me. V4 wouldn't be unreasonable, I suppose.

Hahaha. No apology necessary. It's the North Shore way! Awesome problem regardless of numbers.

Reminded me of JBMFP in J-Tree, but easier and not as highball. V3. Top out on the left.

I've noticed that there are now two entries for problems on the Little Agassiz face, which makes sense. Somehow, my ticks and star rating, etc. all appear on the page for "Driven to Perfection" (which is where they should be), but the comments, etc. have appeared on this reiteration of "unnamed face problem." Makes me wonder if we've been talking about the same problem all this time, or not..

They are indeed two different problems. Let me know if you want anything changed or switched around.

That's alright, Pete, it just adds a little clarity to the conversation about this face. It has always seemed like nobody knew which section, which holds, which beta others were talking about.

I will say that a sit start on the left side, and anything on the right side feels pretty hard for the V3-4 range unless I'm really missing something (which is possible on this very cryptic block). A beautiful place and fun problems regardless.
