Great little spot! Thanks to the folks that did recent updates of some new belay area benches. Lots of cleaning needs to happen here on the walls, but the base area is nice. Great views of the Pacific! Oct 28, 2015

Spent a few days and re cleaned the entire wall. All the routes are free of dirt, grass and loose rock. Enjoy! Jun 25, 2017

This was a great area to climb this morning so thanks for the share! Routes are still cleaning up so be careful climbing and belaying. Had a couple decent sized rocks hit me (wear helmets). Routes should be a lot more awesome once the wall has cleaned up a bit, but did my part today.

Appreciate the work done to the area so many thanks to all involved with the benches and making the bolt lines a lot safer. I understand the disdain of adding bolts to pre-existing lines but in an area such as this, it's probably safer to add more bolts to reduce the likelihood of someone getting hurt or worse due to a large fall due to rock breakage.

cool benches thanks to whoever put in the time to build them look out for poison oak and rockfall on the belayer have fun! Aug 16, 2018
