On the far left of Glass Ocean is a thin 2 bolt route. Center of balance and good finger tips will lead to success.


A couple of large slings around a horn and whatever else you feel you need. 2 draws for the lead and some small nuts.

Very tough lead. Micro-nuts or small brass down low. Between the 2 bolts one can get a piece in the horizontal crack. Finally, after the last bolt, look for a blind nut placement off to the right. Jul 13, 2004
Its actually not too bad. You can easily nest two rp's while standing on the first ramp and use two slightly different sized quickdraws to equalize them. Then there is plenty good gear between the bolts. The last piece was a bomber yellow tcu. I wish there were more climbing packed into it. Nov 10, 2005

Did it last night. It was a great way to get into high dive. Tons of fun and a jug haul after the second bolt. A bomber micronut slotted easily down low. Sequencial moves past the first bolt. Jul 29, 2011
We always considered this the best approach to High Dive. We felt the gear was a bit tricky but all there, at least by 80's standards. Jul 17, 2013
