Routes in Center Bouldering Rock (or the Beach Boulder)

Description

This shorter bouldering rock contains some exellent, but shortjug hauls and traverse routes. The left (east) face alsocontains excellent warmup terrain, a great spot for warming upfor climbing or bouldering at Mickey's Beach. Routes range fromV0 to approximately V4, depending on the current sand height.

Climbing on this rock is tide and sand dependant, at high tideyou'll find the starts in the surf, which make for hurried, dirtystarts. At low sand you will still find excellent warmups,though 1-2 move routes instead of 4-5 moves.

Decending from the top of this rock is no problem regardless ofthe sand height, though your jump down onto the sand will be alittle more interesting!
