Description

Small displaced boulders make for a nice day on the beach. Rock hopping and problem solving are a plus at this location, but temps, poor landings, and occasionally water make this location less than ideal. However, for a climber dragged out to the beach this is the perfect spot to hang out as friends and family can swim, surf, fish, and do other things that beach people like to do. With a handful of the better lines already spotted and snagged there are plenty of problems to do, and I'm sure there are a handful more to be done.

Getting There

For People in the mid OBX area, head to Bonner bridge at the north end of Pea Island. Here there should be a parking lot on the ocean side of the road. After parking head down the path at the back end of the parking lot and follow it all the way to the tip of the island, here there will be a checkered square sign on a post and lots of small displaced boulders surrounding it.

Come on... seriously? There are billions of rocks on the planet. They don't all deserve to be listed on MP. Aug 7, 2017
If it's not a joke, then it's just embarrassing... Jun 19, 2017

Seems like too much work for a joke. If I were a climber stranded in the OBX for a long period of time I might resort to such shenanigans as well. Even though the problems are a bit silly it certainly seems like the boulders are big enough to do a couple of actual climbing moves on.

I don't know how long the problems will last though- those rocks are there to be eroded by the ocean. Jun 19, 2017

This has to be a joke. Jun 16, 2017
Can't tell if this is a joke or not...images and descriptions seem to show lowball, one move routes on large rip-rap/erosion control pebbles, not boulders. Jun 16, 2017
