Description 

A popular and casual route up the towering South face. Loose rock is prevalent on the lower portion of the route and a helmet is advised.

Follow the beach toward the tower then where the sidewalk ends scramble up scree slopes to the base of the rock. There is a spray painted arrow at the base of the route.

Pitch 1: 110 ft. 5.3
wander up the loose and dirty slab with sparse pro to a set of 4 belay bolts.

Pitch 2: 120 ft. 5.4
Walk left along a bushy ledge until you reach a right leaning ramp and romp up the ramp until you are directly above your belayer and belay.

Pitch 3: 90 ft. 5.9+/10-
Head right past some impressive crack systems until you reach a polished spot where two cracks merge in a V shape. There are two bolts here to ease the polish factor. Belay on a slab above.

Pitch 4: 70 ft. 5.7
Follow a few bolts up and left along a slab and belay near a bush.

Pitch 5: 135 ft. 5.7
The goods. A long and airy pitch with incredible views and position. Head for the ridge and belay there.

Pitch 6: 120 ft. 5.7
Traverse left a ways until you find a nice crack through a slab and ascend the crack until you reach a comfy belay.

Pitches 7 & 8: 200 ft. 5.easy
cruise for the top on non-descript ground enjoying the view.

Walk off and eat seafood...

Basically 5.7 or less with one slippy move (maybe just 5.9?) right next to good gear. A bit of a ramble but nice views at the top of the big slab.
