Description 

A good adventure bound to get some funny looks! This is a left to right girdle traverse that can be done anywhere from 6-10 pitches. The climb starts at the Escape Hatch and follows generally easy blocky terrain within half to two-thirds height of the cliff crawling around the sea stack (super cool) and ending on a Dare By the Sea (5.10d). We found the most exciting part of the climb was from Razor Back to Drunken Sailor with options of traversing high through sharp questionable blocks, or low with minimal gear and ground fall potential.

Location 

Start at the Escape Hatch far climbers left of the cliff.

Protection 

Single rack to 3", with doubles between 0.75"-2.5".
