Beneath the Greyrock Summit Trail lies a mostly broken buttress of rock home to two named crags, The Breakers lies at the west end of this buttress, while the Granite Sea is on it's more easterly aspect.
Reaching the Granite Sea is accomplished by following the Greyrock Summit trail until it reaches the base of the wall, at which point climbers should head downhill to the east, reaching the base of the Breakers, and continuing along the base of the buttress to the Granite Sea.
