Great little spot! Thanks to the folks that did recent updates of some new belay area benches. Lots of cleaning needs to happen here on the walls, but the base area is nice. Great views of the Pacific!

Spent a few days and re cleaned the entire wall. All the routes are free of dirt, grass and loose rock. Enjoy!
