Climb either side of the northeast arete. Although both sides are the same rating they involve quite different moves. This route is one of the most popular "highballs" on the beach.


This line is one of the first you'll see from the parking lot. Look for the biggest boulder on the beach, the Flat Top Arete is on the northeast corner off this rock. A 5.0 "walk up" on the southwest corner provides access for toproping.


Stainless bolts, long slings or Pad(s).
