A short dome-like rock found in the shade below the Cold Springs parking area.

Anchors for all climbs are trees found near the top.

The rock is climbable on its north and east sides. The east side is steep and heavily featured. The few climbs are towards its northern end.

The North end is low angled, heavily textured, and is the longest face. This side has crack systems that run throughout. It is a great place to learn to place protection.

Getting There 

From parking area, walk downhill westward for ~350 meters until you see cliffs to your north. There is an indistinct trail that connects this area to the Split Rock area. To find this, just contour at more or less the same elevation to find the other area.

Climbing Season

For the Redwood Coast area.

Weather station 7.3 miles from here

My First Crack 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  California : Redwood Coast : ... : Crack Rock
This low angle face has a plethora of cracks, making it a good choice to work on gear placement. This climb works up a series of cracks along the left-side of the face. There are a few bulges mid-way up that are fun to pull over. Sticking to the crack allows for a wide range of holds including jams, lay-backs, and face holds. Head for the large maple tree on top and use it for a solid anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
