Climb to the 6th (final) bolt of Old Man And The Sea. Move right around the prow to a jug and climb straight up to a two bolt anchor. The exciting run-out climbing no longer exists since Mike added a bolt in January 2012. Mike also managed to do the moves straight up past 6th bolt, which is much harder than traversing right the way I went. Enjoy all the tricky climbing on Old Man And The Sea with a hard finish instead of bailing out left. The redpoint crux used to be this finish but is now at 5th bolt. In Spring 2011, a large sidepull pinch broke off and this section is now a very technical. 12c/d crux.
This lies just right of Nurse Shark.

This route is a duplicate entry of Old Man and the Sea, maybe just make that one the only page? It's confusing since they are listed as 12a and 12d, but the route description is the same.

Definitely agree with Jay. This route description should be nothing more than a comment on the Old Man and the Sea page. It's not only a duplicate, it is also a huge inflation of the grade.
