Description 

The face looks like it is covered in lichen, but there are lots of good holds without lichen. The crux seems to be near the bottom around the first two bolts. This is a fun route if you are in the area. I hope whoever put up the route sees this post and gives it its real name.

Per Locker: The start is probably the crux, though the last move might be interesting for short people.

Eds. this is a combination of 2 submissions for the same route. The information was moved onto the original submission's page.


Location 

This is the bolted route just to the left of Purposefully Put In, 5.7. The first bolt is obvious.


Protection 

6 bolts to a two bolt anchor.

The route stays left of the rope. Don't be fooled, this one is not quite as easy it looks.

Locker got the first ascent on this one, I got the first lead. Locker bolted it, I belayed.

It's a fun line and harder than it looks (at the bottom).

I can't remember what name we decided on: Mark Hamill's Face or Jack Palance's Push-ups.

We also thought it was something like a 5.9.
