Description

Climbs the right leaning crack between Ocean Overhang and Mussel Crack. Start with a short sequence of finger locks to an excellent rest, then power through the bouldery crux section. A bit sharp and chossy for now, but it should clean up quick. Finishes with a series of overhung hand jams eventually easing into a moderate hand crack and dirty top out.
Took about 4 trips to clean and dial the beta. Definitely worth the effort of putting up the top rope.

Location

The section between Ocean Overhang and Mussel Crack. An easy slab leads to a finger crack, bouldery crux, then sustained hand jams to the top.

Protection

Top rope only (for now). Gear would be R rated, but it looks possible.
Have someone show you the approach and setup for the TR, minimal impact please.
With an extended anchor, a 60 meter rope barely reaches the ground.
