The Breakers form the Southwestern edge of the Granite Sea formation. There are currently fourteen recorded routes - many established in the mid-eighties by the likes of J. Brink, C. Luebben, and company. This is definitely the largest concentration of hard lines around Greyrock. For the most part, the rock is solid and of high quality; with more traffic these routes will clean up nicely!
