Just to the east of Face to Face, is a large corner with a hand crack running nearly it's entire length. I used this to solo up to the top of the formation to scout the anchors, etc., and afterward realized this is in the Ruckman Guide, listed with an unknown rating. This would be an excellent first trad lead for the aspiring leader, as it has excellent hand jams, plentiful stemming for the feet, pro whenever wanted, and a moderate angle.
Cams and nuts up to 2.5". Save a couple 2" cams for setting up a trad belay at the top. Otherwise, bail out 2/3 up to the right to use the chains for Face to Face.
