Castle Rock, Marblehead Rock Climbing
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.
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.
