(7) Second Cave Rock Climbing
Climbs in and out of the cave. The only sandy beach is here, and also makes for a great camping spot. After rebolting with titanium in 2016 by QX and friends, some forgotten climbs were revitalized, making this area more than just a rainy day option. As the hillside directly across from the cave entrance continues to slough away, more climbs will be revealed as well.
Rain & Shade
Routes inside the cave and through the arch are dry in the rain. They tend to be rather dank after a long period of rain, however. All other walls dry fairly quickly.
These same routes are also shaded all day. The Hammer Time face goes into the shade early (9am?). All other routes are in the sun until late afternoon.

Climbs up the slab on the main entrance's right side (from the beach, looking in). At a wide sandy break, pull through the first big roof, exiting onto blocky terrain and continue up the corner (supplemental gear is nice here). At the next, bigger roof, contort yourself ever-upwards, plug some gear if you want to protect the slight run-out, then find some good jams, and pull the lip. Romp up easier climbing (gear is nice here too) and stay left of the last bulge.Best climbed ...[more] Browse More Classics in International

On the rocky beach near Second Cave
Nov 8, 2013
A coffee table-sized block came down on top of a popular spot to pitch tents one season. Heads up!
If only there was better rock quality in the cave, there could be potential for some badass routes through the roof. Too bad!
