Description 

SDS with right hand in a good but sharp pocket and left hand on basically nothing; slap and squeeze your way up the perfectly rounded features to a mellow topout.

It is in the V6-V7 range, not V3+. It also happens to be one of the most classic problems in all of DGO....

Location 

Per Erik Durgin: Under The Sea climbs the blunt arete on the far left side of the northeast face of the Pocket Change Boulder. It is very easy to locate as it has a chest hight back-breaker boulder that sits 2 feet behind you as you're climbing.

Protection 

Crashpad. You swing out above a pretty nice ankle breaker for the dyno.

This grade is a little sandbagged. It is probably as hard as Sunday Stroll.

The information provided above is 100% incorrect. Under The Sea climbs the blunt arete on the far left side of the northeast face of the Pocket Change Boulder. It is very easy to locate as it has a chest hight back-breaker boulder that sits 2ft behind you as you're climbing.

The problem that N.R.V is describing is one of the 3-4 nameless, fun, and juggy problems that climb out the center of the steep northeast face. Under The Sea sits about 15ft to the left of these problems.

Nice description, Ryan. Do you know which problem we are talking about? I would rather not have people put up routes on the this website who really don't know anything about the route they are discussing. It is misleading for readers who actually want real information on a rock climb in our local area.

Correct me once. shame on me.
Correct me twice, and you're breaking the second posting guideline.
I hope you have better things to do than try and guilt trip someone online. As a climber, I know you probably don't.
I deleted the irrelevant information. SORRY for the confusion.
