About Face Routes:

Low angle face climbing. Couple of the routes have high first bolts to clip, but the landing below is nice and sandy. The greasy polished holds might not inspire confidence.

There are now four sets of anchor bolts for the Face Routes. The left set is above the bolted route Left Face. Lead up to it; they're only about 3/4 of the way up, not for access from the top. Next to the right and slightly higher is the remnant of an old anchor, not usually used. Most lead past those and continue up and slightly right to the top to reach the anchor bolts atop the Center Route. To the right of that is a new bolted rap anchor atop Right Center. Then furthest right is the anchor bolts atop The Arete. Each of these consists of two or three bolts, but only those on Left Face and Right Center have rap rings. 60 m rope sufficient for TR or rappel. Please don't use bright colored webbing, especially if they're long and make for a huge eyesore for all other beachgoers.

All day shade in winter.
