One Hundred Dollar Face

(2 routes)

Access to the One Hundred Dollar Face is via a series of ledges at the foot of a slab of 'Wanaka like' schist, 30 m below and right of the Pyramid Face. Climb the corner on the right side of this slab then traverse right along broken ledges and scramble up a final corner to reach the belay ledge on the south face.
