This slab is an excellent place to take beginners. In fact, probably the best place on the Redwood Coast to take people who are new to the sport. The slab has four top rope anchors, and each route can be climbed a variety of ways. Routes on the slab range from 5.4-5.9 and a 5.11 variation. The anchors for this slab were first drilled by Paul Humphrey and have since been replaced.

It would be great to see these converted to lead routes with titanium glue-ins. This is one of the few places around here that offers a plethora of beginner and youth friendly climbs.

Getting There 

South end of the cove. Hike around the south side of the rock on a small trail around the back and up a short 3-4th class to reach the anchors.

This is slightly contrived, but very good! Climb the north Arete, starts vert with good holds, but about 20 ft up the angle eases off and the holds disappear. slap up the arete and smear your feet, and a few moves lead to solid feet and decent crimps. can also drift right around the blank spot, keeps it 5.9. Second cruxy section is the upper headwall, left if 5.10-, the right is 5.11+...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
