Description

High Dive is a really cool route. It can be done as one or two pitches, and has a couple of different approaches. One way to get up to it is to get on top of the large block on the left side of the Glass Ocean wall. Do this by either climbing Lord of Long Arms, Atlantis, or scrambling from the left. From here, the route climbs through some fixed pitons.

The other approach, which I used, starts from the anchors on top of pitch 1 of the Northwest Passage. I reached these anchors by starting up Glass Ocean, and traversing between routes after maybe 6 bolts. Either way, the route merges just left of these anchors. Climb up through a thin crack, which has a crux bulge when passing a good bolt. Traverse right using an easy crack system, then straight up a really fun finger/hand crack to the top.

One rope rap (60m rope) off of bolt and piton to the anchor on Northwest Passage. One more one rope rap to the ground.

Protection

Standard Rack. Lots of nuts and mainly smaller gear.
