Cruxy start soon eases to enjoyable beginner moves. Some may want to stick clip the first bolt. Occasionally the first few holds are moist.

No one wants your skanky bare foot-cheese smeared all over the handholds. Climbing bare-foot is not cool.

Sorry, this route is no where near as good as Mr. Bungle. Mr. Bungle is a much more exciting route, plus much more safe. Stick clip that first bolt if this is your leading ability (just like Ray said unless you want a broke leg).

I'd climb other 5.8's before this; not that exciting.

Not a bad route, has some interesting moves on it but the name needs to change. This does not deserve to be named after the beautiful classic 5.8 that is "Face up to that Crack"
JR said on October 14th, 2010
Probably not named after a 5.8 at Left Flank. Probably named because face climbing moves up to arete moves. Get it. Not your "face" on your head or the aspect but a "face" like in a plane or wall. O wait. Probably named after someone looking up at the arete....Forget it. My bad. You're right. Name after that route at Left Flank that is missing a bolt.

Play on words. Kinda like Moonshine and Sunbeam. Subtle humor.
