This short route is on the face to left of Beach Blanket Bingo and to the right of Red Argyle. Start off with some bouldery moves (the 'crux' of the climb)and go up easier ledges above.


Look for the flake up and left for first hands.

Easy walk off to the West, but can also get down to the East.


Nuts and cams. Can TR this climb as well. Anchor off big tree at top of ledge.


There are a few different "lines" on this face that have varied difficulty and are all fun. Set a top rope and have some fun. Aug 25, 2009

Yeah, that route has been on my standard Beach Ball solo circuit for over 20 years...But, maybe its the first time someone used a rope on it? Ha ha.

This is a nice, short, accessible, shaded climb, especially good for those increasingly hot midsummer days. Easy to TR. The bouldery first few moves, in my estimation, are at least 5.8. Aug 14, 2012
This is a really fun line and a great place for a young family to bring the little ones when the creek is running low. Because the routes are so short, this is an ideal place to take small children for a first time outdoor experience. The sandy flat landing in the shade is a perfect place to picnic. SO, pack up the kids and hit this sweet little crag for some mid-day splendor. Apr 25, 2015
