NOTE: I was with the route's namesake, Carl Coy, the day this route was bolted. We were on our way to McCarthy North when we noticed the bolting in progress. Carl voiced his feelings on bolting a face that had been a top rope problem for quite some time... with two beautiful cracks on each side. The debate contined for five or ten... then we went on our way. Next thing we know, Carl's Face was in the book...

Save a #2 C3 before the the last bolt, or you will be talking to yourself.

Excellent movement that is mildly committing!
