DescriptionThe routes on the right side of the Beach could be grouped under the Beach, but the wall has a completely different feel than the standard Beach routes so seperating them out seems to make some sense.
Unlike the left side of the Beach these routes are longer, steeper, and more continuous. The climbing on whole is quite good, with a nice mix of small knobs, edges, and pimples.
The base of the right side is a stellar hang, flat, trees for shade, nice views, hard to beat.
A single 70m works for all routes.
In spite of the trend in recent years to call anything with bolts "sport" climbing the routes here are called "trad" since they were all done ground up. The routes are all reasonably protected, some even well protected, but for the most part the bolts aren't every body length.
(Take the star ratings with a grain of salt, as the area author may have a biased opinion - but some of them are pretty good.)
