Description

Located at the far north end of Ocean Beach, this wall contains a handful of somewhat high-ball boulder problems best described as "okay". Sometimes the tide is high enough to flood the landing, so check the water level in advance or be prepared to climb somewhere else instead.

The approach is a public beach, but the wall itself rests in an alcove that's mostly out of everyone's way; not that many beachgoers will come over and bother you.

Wear sandals unless you like broken glass, jellyfish, and hot, coarse sand.

Getting There

Park near the north end of Ocean Beach (Great Highway @ Balboa Street) and access the beach just like all the other beachgoers do. Walk north through the sand until you find a wall that looks boulderable, just left of a large walk-in cave.
