Great, long pitch that goes up the center of the Sea of Glass wall. Start in a seam that trends slightly left. It opens up in places and you can get some good gear in from time to time. End at a three-bolt belay located just left of a large bush.

Note: I think the Ruckmans goofed in their guide. On the photo topo they've got it right. But I think the description is off. The written description for "Sea of Glass" (5.9+) is actually the description of the route Glasnost. And from what I saw of the cliff, Sea of Glass is 25 feet left of Glasnost and not the other way around.


In the middle of the wall. It's the obvious left-leaning seam-that-turns-into-a-crack that is to the right of the glassiest part of the wall.


Micro nuts, a set of regular nuts, micro cams, regular cams to number 3 Camalot.
