Visited a few weeks ago. Not a bad spot if you want to hang out on the beach and derp around on some small granite formations but the area has little to offer besides that. Jun 12, 2013

Something really needs to be fixed with this page, if not removed altogether.

The routes are all listed as "trad" despite being obvious boulder problems, and use sport/trad ratings.

To be fair, I haven't climbed any of these yet for myself, but from the images none of them appear to be much of a problem at all. Apr 24, 2013
