Not really a face climb but more a dihedral with wide gear. Liked it despite some rather awkward placements

I second that it wasn't a face climb. Definitely a wide crack/dihedral. Nothing too tough, but some interesting body placements.

Bring a wide rack, used between #2 and #4, and found a solid placement for a #0.5, honestly it could probably eat up a #5 as well, but didn't have one.
