Description

A 'don't blow it' solo straight up a clean face to the start of Sea of Green's beautiful lower crack and protection. If you follow the white rock and then traverse right to Sea of Green's crack it's 5.9+ and sustained. If you climb more to the right and straight toward the crack it's less sustained and 5.9.
An alert spotter is recommended until you reach the crack in about 35'.

Location

From the bottom of the North Descent Gully walk approx. 75' west, passing the first slab. Start at the base of a clean face 15' or so left of Sea of Green's left-facing corner and 20' right of Steve's Twilight.

Protection

Your confidence until you reach the crack, then medium cams and wires.

With the addition of the route "Steve's Twilight", GMDirect can easily be TR'd off the Rock Candy P1 anchors (use a long sling) with a directional off of Steve's Twilight bolt #6. Nice! Sep 28, 2016
Isn’t the crack like 15-20 feet up? That’s more like a highball boulder start. It’s been a while since I was there could be wrong... Aug 4, 2018
