As a two-pitch climb, Let's Face It is a T-Wall rarity, though it can easily be done as a single pitch with a 70-meter rope. Nice exposure, challenging for the grade and very worthwhile.
P1: At a left-facing corner, either climb a large crack on the left face (easier), or up the ante by following the corner with a varying crack to a large ledge. 40', 5.7+
P2: Follow a pretty orange corner up past blocks to a large roof. Traverse left under the roof, then continue up a vegetated left-facing corner past dirty ledges to the top. 60', 5.7+
Starts about 10' left of Steeplechase/Super Slide. Two-rope rap will get you down in one rap, or two raps with a single.
Standard rack; cams up to #3 Camalot or equivalent. Bolted anchor at the top; a slung chock serves as a rap station at the P1 ledge.

Haven't met anyone yet who's led this that considers it a 5.7.

We did this in one pitch, with one rope, including the rap. Climbed the corner variation. Don't go too high when you traverse under the roofs. The better holds and feet are slightly lower. Yeah, probably 5.7...with some good exposure.

Did this route on my soloist! Ran head first into a snake popping up onto the ledge, yes I would say this route goes at a 5.7 great route minus the snake and the small detour i took to avoid him!.

Great route on lovely rock - even a good bit of shade from the tree. I found all the climbs here a little stiff for the grade... but then I'm soft. We did this in one pitch and lowered off, 60m rope, no problems.

has some fun bits of climbing. you'll have about 6 ft of rope left if you climb the whole thing with a 60.
