Micah Elconin in the crux.

Description 

A solidly engaging, long, and varied journey up the center of the crag. There's a physical crux in the middle, and a technical "face" climb at the top—the latter is uncommon at the Tor. Quality cruxes interspersed with good rests.


Location 

Two lines to the left of Power.


Protection 

Fixed Draws.

In recent news, Phil et al have been steadily digging away at the base of The Sea, adding holds on the wall as they go. So far, they've added about 8 extra feet of climbing movement to the start. If you can't keep going up, might as well go down, eh?
