Description

This Bouldering rock is home to several interesting routes, and is worth bouldering at when the sand is low (which is usually winter - late spring.)

It's on the beach, so chances are pretty good that the rock will be in the fog. It might be in the sun, in which case it will probably be windy there.

You can walk off all routes via another rock, or in the summer you can just hop off.

BEWARE that this is in a large nudist area, and there will be sprawls of naked people wandering around during the weekends. If this offends you, you should probably head elsewhere.

Getting There

From the main parking lot, head down the path to the main rock junction. Head right along the beach for about 150 yards passing several larger boulders that probably have chalk on them. You will pass through a corridor and finally head left back onto the main beach, and this will be Danger Rock.

If you're in doubt, wander around to the beach side where you will see danger stamped on the top of the rock. The is also the last rock of the main Mickey's beach bouldering for several hundred yards.

The Orange Buddha Boulder tilted in winter 2017: summitorplummet.blogspot.co… Sep 6, 2017
The boulder moved again.... The north face routes are all pretty much gone. The cool starting flake on the east face broke off. it looks like it will continue sliding down towards the ocean. Sad! Feb 24, 2017
The entire Orange Buddha rock has moved. Shifting sand in high tide or something maybe. But a lot of the climbs are affected - some at smaller angles, others with now inaccessible starts. Apr 18, 2016

Just as a heads up to everyone, this boulder has shifted due to lower sand levels. The new angle has changed up all the problems. Some are harder some are easier. Apr 12, 2016
A comment on the beta pic: the sand is pretty low. Right now (april) the sand is about 18 inches higher, but you can still do the low starts. Apr 3, 2004
