Choose Life (5.13+); FA: Matt Samet, Ted Lanzano, Paul Glover, 2012 (toprope: 2002): This is a 30-meter pitch midway along the south face of Seal Rock, and climbs an obvious wide black streak up a consistently overhanging wall past 13 bolts to a double-bolt anchor over the final bulge, on the slab. Long/extendo draws are useful down low and on a few other clips for rope drag and stancing. Also useful: A Metolius 6 (green, or No. 1 Camalot) between the second and third bolts, and a Metolius 2 (yellow, or a yellow C3) between bolts three and four—at least your first time through the route before long draws are hanging.
