Description

A solidly engaging, long, and varied journey up the center of the crag. There's a physical crux in the middle, and a technical "face" climb at the top—the latter is uncommon at the Tor. Quality cruxes interspersed with good rests.

Location

Two lines to the left of Power.

Protection

Fixed Draws.

In recent news, Phil et al have been steadily digging away at the base of The Sea, adding holds on the wall as they go. So far, they've added about 8 extra feet of climbing movement to the start. If you can't keep going up, might as well go down, eh? Oct 6, 2013

More beta. Also, you can hear the song of the Canyon Wren in the background. Due to "The Sea's" length, it felt like a step up in difficulty from "Automagic" (also 12a).
