Description 

A nice big face with a giant X crack through it. Lots of potential for development in this area. The cracks on this face could make for more excellent routes with some TLC. Sport and sprad options abound.

Getting There 

From outhouse at upper Archangel Road hike the main path down to creek, cross on boulders, then hike up the most beaten path (alongside the ridge with many climbing areas on your right) past the Webfoot mining prospect. Avoid the lighter colored talus on the approach; it's loose.
