Named after the ancient Inland Sea, this intimidating highball was a project for nearly a decade until Ryan fought his way up it. The thin seam at the far right of the western wall, right next to the main entrance. Stand start on tiny crimps, strenuous moves up and R gain arete and undercling, before technical, committing moves lead to a high and scary top out.
