Intro/Strategy

South Seas is one of the cooler, long steep El Cap routes. Climbing out the alcover at the bottom of the route is some of the most outrageous climbing anywhere on El Cap. And unlike the testpiece aid routes around it like Tempest, Atlantis, and Space, South Seas is very reasonable for its grade. It is a logical step up after Mescalito or Never Never Land. The cruxes are a few thin pins, or sections of the fixed heads.
