Description 

In the sun for the first half, then about noontime stays in the shadows. Good base and easy access to setup a top rope on the harder routes.

Bring gear to set a directional in the crack for Lifelong Affliction.

Rock quality is very good and the routes are interesting. The grades are a little sandbagged, there are definitely no gimmes here.

100 feet right of the obvious left facing corner (Brightly Colored Males) there's a 4th class gully that leads to the top for access to anchors or as a walkoff.

Getting There 

Follow shore of Chapel Pond, just before you reach Tilman's Arete there's a gully and trail heading left. Follow the trail up the gully for about 5 minutes of steep hiking. You will reach an intersection (you can see the right corner of the Gully Cliff through the trees). Head right on the climber's path for 2 minutes to reach the base of Tanager Face.
