Description

The tallest formation at Moonstone Beach is Karen Rock. Numerous 60 foot topropes, variations, and a couple trad excursions can be found here. It faces west collecting the afternoon sun and is often strung with ropes on a nice day.

Getting There

Walk north up the beach for 75 yards. Look right.

Walk up sandy trail. Set up TR. Climb solid conglomerate to see foggy redwoods and meandering estuary, or belay from sand as sun sets.

Heaven on earth, either way. Sep 27, 2007
