When you arrive at the base of Glass Ocean, there are 2 bolted routes. The right climb is Left Tributary. Thin beginning followed by a tough mini-roof. Enjoy


3 draws and a 1 bolt anchor unless you continue up Glass Ocean. Don't recommend the 1 bolt anchor.

If you've done Glass Ocean already, jump on that and clip the 3rd bolt with a long runner then move left to join Northwest Passage. Another long runner on the bolt above the ledge makes for a long fun line that doesn't make you reclimb Glass Ocean (even though it feels about the same). The bottom feels way easy for .10d with great feet and a big hidden crimp for the roof.

Kind of an interesting sequence. I thought it was harder than 10d but as I sprayed beta to my buddy on his try he made it look a little easier. Food for thought.

Thin and fun!

If you climb left of the three bolts, it's this climb, and if you climb right of the same bolts, it's Right Tributary.

Felt like a 10 d until i made it to the jug at the 3rd bolt? jug eases the difficulty at the top.... Good link up with Northwest passage.
