Good Arapiles 18-22 Face Climbs 24-Nov-2006 At 10:58:47 AM stuart h
I assume your specification of face climbs means that you don't want to stick your hand/fist/foot/head into anything too unpleasant. For a weekend these are all one pitch routes to rappel stations, you climb them basically on holds rather than any continuous crack features and you should find generally excellent protection (although you will want rps for a couple of them):

18 - kinkaid, garden gnome, morgul khan (and the even better salem (flake)next to it)
19/20 -tannin, rosy shy, firedance, new image
21/22 -sky diver, wasp, feral chicken, in lemon butter

If you want a bigger outing, Auto de fe has pretty good pro (better than people seem to expect, especially if you climb 22) and you can link it into Stranger's Eliminate for 4-5 pitches of solid climbing with hardly a crack in sight.
