Located just right of Sail Away. Ascend steep face, using bomber cam placements to lower angle area, clip bolt, continue up, placing gear where available. Pull onto arete (sparse if any pro) and climb up to Glass Ocean anchor.


Located on the right side of the Glass Ocean wall. Start on the same ledge as for Sail Away.


Cams from 00 TCU (very nice to have!) through .4 camalot. One bolt. Use Glass Ocean anchor. Could use another bolt or two to protect runouts on good rock? Can also clip first bolt on Sail Away then head up and slightly right.
