Description

Small toprope and bouldering area just south of Carmel off highway 1.

Getting There

Third pull off after the Granite Canyon Bridge.

There are three areas that can be set up for TR. Two of these can be bouldered with potential for broken ankles (upper/lower corridor). There were bolts above the corridor at one point. Unclear what condition they're in now (if someone adds a comment, I'll update). Back up the anchor with trad gear. There is a decent 5.9/5.10a TR that needs trad gear for the anchor (IIRC #1 - 4 BD cams).

There is a ton of bouldering here. However, beware of the landings! There is almost zero flat ground. One or more bouldering pads are recommended. I've heard tale of someone bouldering here back in the 80's/90's who fell, knocked their head, woke up semi-submerged as the tide was coming in.
