Located near the end of the Red Wall, Let's Face It sits just to the left of Chouinard's Crack and Moscow and follows a bolt line up requiring delicate movements.
Getting to the first clip can be consequential if you don't make it, a stick clip is recommended. Step on a block of rocks and get onto the face using small holds up through the first two bolts before using a small seam to work your way back to the right and up. Small holds, balance, and technical moves don't seem to let up until you reach the anchors. A mantle is thrown in for good measure along the way. Overall, a great climb that represents the technical nature of climbs at Smith.

Given Black Diamond’s reputation for strong and durable hard goods, we decided to give their 9.9mm rope a try as our go to gym rope. The rope is priced right and works great out of the box but early signs of wear in the gym make it hard to give it the nod as a preferred gym rope.
