Description

Sit start in the biggest cave, climbs short roof section then out onto face climbing. Very fun unique moves.

Location

Standing on the beach, looking at the stairs, it's in the cave to the right of the stairs. A few feet to the left of the lowest hanging bulge of the cave. The start holds are inside the cave about a foot apart and always very chalked.

Protection

The landing is all sand

Does anyone know what tide height is best for climbing in this spot? In some of the videos out there, it looks like the tide can get pretty close to the fall spot.

This is a classic problem that is best in the evening after the sun has had the opportunity to bake off the excess moisture. There are several variations, best to try and use toe hook and bicycles on the earlier holds as you progress to keep your feet on. Aug 24, 2018
