|Sea Lion||HVS 5b, 4b|
|2 pitches. A fine traverse below the long roof to the right of Sweet S A leads to a loosish top pitch. A large block has fallen at the end of the traverse, bumping the grade to 5b from the original grade of 5a.
1. 80ft 5b. Follow Sweet S A to it's bulge, traverse out right beneath the roof and pull around to reach the faultline. Belay at the faultline.
2. 70 feet, 4b. Traverse right for 15 feet, climb up for the same distance & return left into the groove. Climb the groove to a steep finish. Stake belay.
Far better is to finish up the great upper crack of 'Heidelberg Creature', making a ** route with this combination.|
