Overview
The Pacific Ocean Wall is an intimidating climb with a very moderate first pitch. This is a great first aid climbing lead. The climbing will prepare you for the easier aid pitches on The Nose. The route is in the sun from mid-morning to mid-afternoon. The crack swallows a variety of solid cam and nut placements.
