12 pitches. 5.7 C2F. One of the popular big walls for those working up to the Nose. Steep with lots of fixed gear.
5.13b A0, the free variation (The Westie Face, Leo Houlding 2001) starts where the bolt ladder ends at a small ledge in a shallow steep groove. Next pitch to Ahwahnee ledge is the crux at 5.13b with four further pitches of 5.12 or 5.13. Described by Leo as of semi-sport nature and set to become a classic of its grade. Flashed by Caldwell in 2004.
