Stranded at Sea is a thin seam with a fixed piton (previously an aid route?).


This is located on the slab next to Automotive Supply House.


Small nuts and ball nuts down low with micro cam placements on the second half

This seems to match the description for Stranded at Sea.

@ Steve, this is the same Stranded at Sea that can be found in the Vedauwoo guidebook. As far as I know, it is not otherwise listed on MP. Cheers,

I think the block is off on this thing. :P Luckily it's only 5.9 until where you're feet are on it.

@ Bart,

Ha, I usually go for taking the path of least resistance and use the block since its within reach. That said, I think Molly recently did it without the bock? Cheers.

I'm curious what Lindsey had for the initial couple of pieces. I tried to onsight this a few years ago, placing the pro on lead, and needed double set of small RPs to protect the first hard moves, literally two of the same size a couple inches apart to get something I was willing to fall on. The block - use it, don't, whatever, it doesn't really affect the difficulty and was a bit contrived to try to avoid it. I found the crux the first 3 moves or so going past the block, with bad funky feet and long reaches. There was a fixed pin right at the end of the crux IIRC, and I think I would have had a meltdown if the pin wasn't good. If you plan to onsight this, it might be wise to send a friend up Horticulture to rap in and check the pin first. It's a really attractive line. Good job, Lindsey.

It's been a few years since Lindsay and I got on the route, but as I recall, we had a nest of small nuts below the pin, though a ballnut may work as well.
