The Perfect Storm takes an attractive, direct line up the north face of Seal Rock with a spectacular finish just right of the summit prow.
P1. Locate the first bolt about 15 feet up the gray slab. Pad up low-angled face climbing to a slanted belay ledge with a chain anchor, 5.10a, 75 feet (10 bolts).
P2. This is an exposed and colorful journey up the steepening wall to an anchor below the summit. Demanding moves off the belay and thin face climbing lead to a pillar where the wall overhangs. Follow bolts through a steep, orange corner, then continue right of the arete on surprising holds to chains at the lip of the wall, 5.13a, 115 feet (21 bolts).
**BONUS POINTS: mantel the lip, and walk 20 feet to the true summit of Seal Rock :)
**A 70-meter rope BARELY gets you back to the belay. Otherwise, you will have to lower twice.
