|The gear at the top is adequate, but no more than that.|

i thought this had a few nice moves.
this also has a possible direct start but it's dicey:
jump to the good hold under the main face at the arete and campus/heel hook your way to a stance. a little harder than the direct start to the route on the right.

|I don't remember any "vertical crack in the face" on the lower part of this route. Once you're on the face (I make the big step off the block on the left onto the arete) it's basically just moving from horizontal to horizontal (with gear in each one). The upper face is steep so getting the gear requires a bit of stamina, but it was more than adequate; I think I placed two stoppers and a couple cams in that last 20 feet. Overall a very good face climb.|
