Face of Spades is a rarely climbed route between Steppin Razor and Finger Monkey. Powerful moves on brown rock to moderate, featured gray limestone. Finish with a clean headwall and small roof to reach the chains.

Face of Spades can be identified by the old school bolts. The climbing is surprisingly fun but the route could use more cleaning and perhaps another bolt near the end. A stick clip is recommended.
