Direct Finish Suggest change

Climb to the 6th (final) bolt of Old Man And The Sea. Move right around the prow to a jug and climb straight up to a two bolt anchor (shared with Deepwater Horizon). The exciting run-out climbing no longer exists since Mike added a 7th bolt in January 2012. Mike also managed to do the moves straight up past 6th bolt, which may have a harder move or two versus traversing right (that has more moves). Enjoy all the tricky climbing on Old Man And The Sea with a hard finish instead of bailing out left. The technical cruxes used to be at the 3rd bolt & then the direct finish, but is now at the 5th bolt. In Spring 2011, a large side pull pinch flake broke off and this section is now a very technical. 12c crux. This section was originally 5.11 but is now much harder than the rest of the climb. My original rating for Old Man & The Sea Direct was .12a/b.
