This climb is right of all the other Glass Ocean climbs. Hike right and then clamber up a crack system to a ledge. Traverse left to gain this climb. A couple of long slings are handy for a base anchor. This climb is a nice climb to start off the Glass Ocean day. There is 1 tricky bulge. and some space between bolts before joining Glass Ocean.


2 bolt anchor, and 6 or 7 draws for the climb.

Some seemingly hefty space between bolts would dissuade me from sending a less confident partner up on lead despite the generally easy climbing. Not the best 5.7 for cutting teeth.

This is a pretty fun warm up climb, one section is pretty spread out between bolts, but good holds.
