Start below 25' corner. Make some technical moves to get to the corner. Climb the corner to a small roof. Move out left and over the roof to gain the bolted slab. Climb thin edges to the Seal's anchors. Very exciting route and can be TR'ed after having led the Seal.


Directly below the Seal's P1 bolted anchor in a large right facing corner.


Single rack with small nuts and 2 bolts. It is worth headpointing or at least figuring out the small nut placements that protect the corner laybacking. They are blind very precise key hole placements that can easily be messed up.

7-12-15 My friends and I were top roping this route after climbing the seal. This was the first time we had climbed on this route and one of the guys in our group was up at the flake above the small roof. It was located near the end of the route. My buddy and I were talking at the base of the route when we heard "it moved look out it move!" we jumped up and walked way left. The group decided to trundle this flake as it was almost pulled off onto us belaying below. The flake was large and came loose simply by pushing the top of it with his foot. I hope no one is offended by this. We should have cleaned up the area better after the flake fell and for that I am sorry. Jul 14, 2015

I thought this was a great and exciting lead! Gear down low was thin, but not too tricky. Fun interesting movement the whole way with a good rest in between sections Aug 4, 2017

Very cool pitch (although the upper slab section is heinous). Kudos to anyone who has led this. I'd call it a test piece. Aug 5, 2018
