Good mostly about fifty foot slabbing in a beautiful location. This is a great hideout from the hikers chattering above. This area is very open and receives full sun for most of the day. Gear is necessary to set up a belay but otherwise the routes are mostly well protected with bolts.

Getting There 

Above and right of "The Ocean", and below the hiking trail. Rap down from an eye bolt just below the hiking trail. Or climb Boat Ramp and belay on the right.

Climbing Season
