Description 

Egg Face is the lower angle face on the East side of The Egg. Egg Face goes up past two bolts to top anchor. The moves are thin but holds are there. Difficult to see as they blend with the color and character of the rock. The runout after the second bolt eases to 5.4 or so. Don't fall clipping the second bolt as this may result in hitting the ground...

Two bolts to one-bolt anchor.

Thought provoking clips on lower angle climb. Holds are small, some sloping, but they are all there. 3 Glu-in bolts give the climber confidence to peek over the top, resulting in a beautiful view of the Pacific. Long distances between clips result in missed-clip groundfalls, so It is best to have your whits about you before attempting this climb.
