Description 

These are beautiful rocks right on the ocean. The rock quality is good, not soft or loose. It varies from juggy, jagged holds up away from the water to slopers on the wet side. The climbs are short, but there are multiple traverse possibilities.

Getting There 

Park along Ocean avenue and walk down Castle Rock Lane. Most of the climbs are down the stone stairs, some are up on the main rock.

Hey everyone,

This place is quite under-developed. If that is the case, I have three new routes to post from last night including a crack climb. If anyone has any other beta that is unavailable, please post - otherwise these seem like first ascents which I can post routes, grades, locations, beta, and photos.
