The north face is located just past the Northeast Buttress and is the furthest right portion of Suicide Rock; it offers a decent selection of one and two pitch routes including many moderates. Do be aware that local guide services often utilize the shorter climbs on the far right for classes. An easy walk-off descent can be made from any of the routes that top out by following a trail down along the margin of the rock.
Follow the trail which runs along the base of the rock past the Northeast Buttress until you reach the north face which is the very last portion of the rock before it tapers off into dirt.

Little Murders 5.3 3+ 10 III VD 3a CA : Tahquitz & Suicide Rocks : ... : North Face
This route climb the huge, right-facing corner system at the far end of the crag and is the last major feature on the wall before it peters out into the hillside. Lieback up the corner and at the top either finish straight up or undercling out right via a large, somewhat dubious flake (5.5). Easy descent by walking right from the top and downclimbing an easy flake/ramp system below a large pine tree. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
