SEA OF GLASS WALL in Mule Hollow
This has about Everything you would want in a climb, yet Nothing is difficult. Holds are abundant, steep solid rock, and route finding challenges dominate this adventure venue! Nothing Fixed was left on this trad climb.

Pitch #1: Climb this face finding the occasional placement up really fun and varied moves. Reach a small ramp that leads 10m to the right and up to the SEA OF GLASS original 3 piton fixed anchor. 5.7, 50m

Note 5.30.08: The 3 Pin Anchor serving these three routes has been eliminated. These pitons tapped so easily out of this hard quartzite (but, I didn't feel the rock quality in this spot was particularly good or maybe it was the freeze-thaw effects over 15 years?), I was amazed. The anchor is now a 3-bolt belay with chain located 2m below and left of the original anchor in better rock.

Location Suggest change

Starting 5m to the right of THE GROUND GLASS and well to the left of the route SEA OF GLASS, this is classic Mule Hollow climbing. The faint trail is as for Mule Hollow Wall until just before the routes found on the main wall. SEA Of Glass Wall is low and to the left (south) of the main wall and shady and pleasant and a nice place to hang out.
Rappel from the pin anchor with two ropes.
