No surprise, Far Face is the farthest developed area from the High Rocks parking lot. It is still one of the simplest areas to access, since it only requires a short level trail hike from the lot. This means that, like Practice Face, it sees a bit more use by guided groups.

Getting There 

Park at the High Rocks vista lot. From the trailhead, cross the road and walk right to the (fenced) cliff edge. Follow the Overlook Trail left/east past the four named overlooks. At the far end of the climbing area, the cliff edge nears the trail. Walk past the nearest point, to an easy gully on the right, with natural steps leading down. If you've picked the right place, at the bottom you'll see a sign marking the division of rescue areas B and C. Follow the trail at the bottom of the cliffs right/west, and the first obvious climbing area is the Far Face.
