P1: 5.7. Towards the left side of the Sea of Joy formation, start on an easy slab and work your way past a couple small ledges to a decent stance and a set of chain anchors.

P2: 5.9. This is another fun chert pinching pitch on the left side of the major headwall of Sea of Joy. Work straight up the outside face of a left facing corner. As the corner arches left and forms a major roof, stay on the face and foot traverse on chert across a crack and just above the roof. Continue straight up on excellent chert holds to the anchors just below some large bushes near the top of the face.


Left of Magic Carpet Ride.


P1: 9 bolts, chain anchors.
P2: 10 bolts, sport anchors. It is recommended the leader lower from the sport anchors back to the stance at the chain anchors.

One 60 meter rope will get you back to the ground with one lower and one rappel.
