Description

Climb a neat bouldery start on the face, which starts at the beginning of The Sea Cave (5.10c), and traverses across the base of the rock, and then up to the first bolt. The start is fun, though just like the Sea Cave, I wonder why the climb continues up over the corner. It's about 5.1 up above the roof, unless it's wet.

This route may be wet, so plan accordingly.

There also seems to be a variation to this climb that starts in the cave, and comes up over the roof towards the first bolt. My guess is that this alternate would also go at about a .12a, though I haven't climbed it. At high tide or on a windy day, this alternate route will be soaked.

If you get to the first bolt, you're done. If you're on lead and you fall before the first bolt, have fun calling a helpicopter to get yourself out! There's tons of jagged slippery rocks in the base of the climb, and it's about 15 feet to the first bolt.

Protection

3 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor. You can walk to the top anchors to set up a top rope, though bring a really long sling to reduce the horrid rope drag is recommended.

Either stick clip the first bolt (which is 15' off the ground and past the cruxy start), or bring a stitch kit.
