Description [Suggest Change]
This beautiful rock, standing proud at about 60-70 feet tall, resembles a massive egg that sits right at the edge of the Pacific. It's home to six lines, in an remote, scenic location where occasionally the only other people you'll bump into are climbers or fishermen. Given the recent development of this cliff, some of the climbs will feel a little loose due to the continued exfoliation of the rock. But with enough traffic, the climbs on the Emperor Boulder will become classics once they clean up and solidly.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Park about a mile south of the parking lot for Main Rock on Hwy 1 in a pull out that can fit 3 or 4 cars, which is the same pullout for Endless Bummer. Walk down the ridge for a minute or two coming across a mini, boulder scramble until you can see the cliff down on the right side on the shore. At first it might seem perilous to descend to the cliff, but with the correct trail and cautious steps, getting down there won't be too bad.
