BETA PHOTO: Garden of Eden and Shark Fin

Description 

Long crack climb over the ocean. Can only be accessed at low tide by hopping along rocks, but there is a nice belay ledge above the waterline.

This isn't a 5.10c, we felt that it was easier than a lot of 5.9's at main face. A few questionable flakes/blocks and some pebbles keep things interesting - this one could use a rappel down with a crowbar but the blocks are pretty easily navigated.

Climb an arching crack to a flake system below the roof. Climb carefully past the flakes with pro in adjacent cracks then face climb up to a wide crack (#4 camalot nice here). This crack leads to a grassy ledge.

Top out via exposed scrambling.

Protection 

Standard rack to #4 camalot, very well protected. Few extra cams could be nice for building the gear anchor.
