I have to agree with M. Morley's comment regarding Isaac T's statement about the potential for climbing & bouldering along the central coast of CA. While there is a lot of rock this area is OFF the beaten path and NOT on the road to any destination areas, so can't be considered really accessible and the rock quality varies greatly.
