This is another narrow face that is up to 70 feet tall. It lies just to the right of the G Face. There is an interesting chimney on its left side, Fallout. Some of these lines can be lead. The ring is about 15 feet back from the edge of the face and can be supplemented with a #13 BD wire & Tricam.

The Cave 5.5 4b 13 IV+ 11 MS 4a  MA : Quincy Quarries : G Wall (aka H Face)
The start is the same as Little Inch on G Wall. When you reach a horizontal crack about one quarter of the way up, break away from Little Inch and angle up to the left.
