Climb the first two bolts of Glass Ocean to a ledge, then continue up and left past more bolts to a three bolt belay...nice and balancey (5.9). From the belay, head right up an 1.5" crack/groove, then move back left past two bolts. Next, cross over the diagonaling crack of High Dive and continue past more bolts to a bolt/pin anchor (10c). This upper face is some of the best face climbing in BCC. For an easier, more tradly variation, go right on High Dive's diagonaling finger crack and finish on that route's beautiful 5.8 finger/face finish.
