Description:

At the top of the cliff and looking at the ocean move left until your path is blocked by an seemingly sheer secion that drops off into the ocean. Here move around a large block to find the 2 bolt anchor. Rap down and set a bely partway upa mellow, sloping corner (hand and fist sized cams). 'Morning Glory' begins up this corner until it becomes broken then follows two bolts up the face. Keep heading for a third bolt, then move left toward the arete. A beautiful climb, but not for unseasoned leaders.

Alternate rappel. Furhter down from the MG anchors is a set of ring bolts, even more well hidden, these drop you directly onto a small pedestal that you can move off and to the right for the MG belay.

5 out of 5 stars -

Don't let the grade fool you as this is a very committing setting, from the poison ivy covered rap station to the soggy sea swept belay stance below. Leave a fixed rope at the rap station as an escape route.

5 out of 5 stars Its so loud

Amazing climb with a constant reminder of the ocean as the waves crash below you. I'd suggest radio as its almost impossible to hear the lead after about 15 ft.

5 out of 5 stars Freaky Route

This route is slippery and scary. It is an adventure just rapelling down into it. A great bit of fun.
