Climb up good edges and horizontals up the face right of a chimney to a small roof. Pull the roof and lie-back up a thin left leaning corner.


The South face of The Sea Stack.


Gear anchor. Maybe some webbing or some static line.

Really fun line. Would make a great little sport climb were bolting accepted. As is, It's still worth a top rope.

Unaware of any anchor potential at the cliff's edge, we constructed a bomb-proof anchor using an entire 60m line as a rope-o-lette!

Leave your drill at home and man up. I led it 30 years ago. May 23, 2011

Landonf, any word on what the lead is like? What kind of gear, and falls? May 8, 2013

There are plenty of places to place gear, but be prepared to extend a bit. Webbing or static line will be very helpful. If you walk to the climber's left past the seastack you can get a good view of the route. The prime anchor spot ends up making your lead line go over a ledge that you would not see from above. Make sure you plan accordingly and protect your rope! We found it best to hang the anchor over the top of the seastack lip, and have the belayer stand on the ledge, with a rope bag protecting the rope rubbing against the lip of the ledge.

Very fun climbing! Oct 2, 2013

I'd probably run it like JayMorse describes next time. I naively protected the top edge without realizing the one 4ft down. Belaying on the ledge makes it so you can see the climber better... albeit you'll both be below you make the final move back onto the stack. Aug 29, 2016
