Comments: Another viable option for pitch 7 is to belay on the ramp atop pitch 6 and move the belay [right] to below a left-facing arcing hand and fist crack (see attached photo), effectively climbing the feature between Cowboys and Indians and Risky Business on Rossiter's topo. You end up on the same big ledge but closer to the upper pitches. The crack goes at about 5.11, and while the rest of the route does not require much large gear, two #2, and #3 Camalots would be useful for this pitch.

Comments: Currently no fixed wires in the crack. 2x (blue Alien/purple Metolius), 1x 0.3 Camalot, and 1x 0.75 Camalot supplement the 3 bolts and chains nicely.

Comments: Im sure someone has already freed the roof traverse in this photo, but I thought I would mention it because I think it presents a pretty cool way to enter the upper pitches on the tooth. Something like, funky 5.10 moves to gain the crack to a face traverse crux where the crack pinches down, to eventually gain the fist lip, something like super techy 5.11. Pretty cool bit of crack climbing in an awesome setting..

Comments: If anyone is curious as to the current status of the hardware on this route, I've got a whole slew of photos I would be happy to share. In any other circumstance, I would probably vote for a re-quipping, but it's hard to justify this when all of the other 'vertical' climbs at Seal Rock seem to be a testament to bold free climbing....
