Description 

To start Sea Of Green, step down to the right off the Bird's Nest ledge. Climb to the right of the long-needled pine past 2 bolts. A few gear placements (cams 1/4"-5/8")in the crack, lead to the remaining bolted face above. Fun climb!


Protection 

9 bolts and a few placements (cams 1/4"-5/8") protect this beauty of a climb. 2-bolt chained anchor for the descent

Worthy pitch on good stone. I was expecting more of a contiguous crack with maybe some jamming. None of that...if you expect more of a face climb, you'll be stoked.

Thanks for the pic, Jason. You are the 1st person to comment on any of these routes at the BIRD"S NEST.... The other pitches are stellar too! I often wonder how many people have made it up there?
