Description

This is a fantastic two-pitch climb on the lower tier of Granite Sea.

P1: assault the short but burly offwidth (left of the poison ivy fest), cruise up an enjoyable left-angling fist/hand crack, and then commit to thin face moves above, which gains a good belay atop a block. There's a big flake/horn thing to sling here.

P2: continue up the left-leaning hand-crack till it fizzles out, bust some thought-provoking face moves to gain the horizontal crack above, and lieback left to gain an easier slab exit to the ledge and a comfortable tree-belay.

Location

Hike to the Breakers, enjoy the 4th class traverse to Granite Sea, hike down to the end of Granite Sea, find the tree-sling anchor, make a single double-rope rappel to the ground, walk ten feet left until you spot the obvious offwidth. Or bushwhack there from the meadow....

Protection

Standard rack + a #5 C4.
