90 Foot Slab Rock Climbing
Old bolt on the left, new bolt on the right.
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.
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.
