Comments: Kind of an odd place to ask such a question, but if you're not physically sleeping somewhere than why would you need a campsite? Just bivy in yer car or get more creative. Unless of course you're worried about Ninja-Rangers out patrolling in the wee hours of the night. If so, climb in all black and don't use any lights or neon colored ropes.

Comments: Good shot.
Although it looks like there's room for at least 1 more bolt between those two.

Comments: The initial slab was gritty, but the rest was quite clean. I really liked this route. I don't recall it being run out at all.

Comments: I think posting this pic is a disservice. How else are peeps to go way off route to the left @ the top and take a big ass swing with their lead fall?

Comments: We grabbed the jug after the fixed pin on the left leaving the initial dihedral. This way continues with 5.9ish moves with bolt, a suspect pin, an obvious small nut placement inches above the pin, bolt, pin, anchor.

Fun moves, but gritty and kinda grungy still. A good line otherwise.

Comments: I've never noticed how precarious that boulder looks up there.

Comments: I'd add a .5, .75, or #1 BD cam to the list. There's a crack for gear before the last crux. Even with this placement, I wouldn't call the route super safe. Love the old-school barely-safe routes. The quality is on par with DOTM to it's right.

Comments: So, this seems obvious, but can't you get good gear in Dirty Rotten Horror to the left while climbing this?

I'm thinking of a word that starts with "S" and rhymes with "Jeez".

Comments: @ ddriver: It's not Glasnost, but is close to it in spots. Glasnost is the R-most route on the wall and looks to be quite vegetated up higher where you'd find gear.

Comments: Great route which would only be so-so if it was a bolt up. Finding the gear is half the fun.

Comments: Didn't find it that dirty. Fun route. Although I do think it was more like 5.8+. And it is indeed called Sea of Glass.

Comments: I nominate this photo for amputee poster child of the year. Or at least a case study on distal circulation disorders.
