Located just eight feet left of the East Face route on the Shark's Fin is a new line of bolts. The rock is considerably higher quality than the two routes to the right.

A nice addition.


Left of center on the East Face.


6 bolts to 2-bolt anchor with Mussy Hooks.

This is another Tim Standing route established in 2007, "Coral Sea Adventure" rated 5.7.

If you ask me, Tim missed a great opportunity by not naming the route "Corral Sea Adventure".

Agreed that this route is one of the better on the east face.

Good climbing and fairly solid rock.

The starting jug has broken off 10/1/14. It was lying in the dirt when I arrived at the route. Route is much more difficult to start. Good reminder to not pull out so hard while climbing in the hills.

I'm thinkin' maybe 10a to start? Stick clip the first bolt and yer good. Anyway, a good deal harder than before.

I don't know what the start was like before, but it's definitely not 5.7/8 now. I'd say somewhere in the 5.9+/5.10 range. And by the time you get to a safe stance the first bolt is chest level. Good climb.
