Description 

The highest rock at Twin Coves has several faces that all climbing, though none of it is really worth doing. 2 bolts sit atop the rock, one a janky 1/4" spinning rustpile, and the other a 3/8" rust thing. Top roping from the bolts is insane. If these bolts were replaced and the rock cleaned up a bit, there could be some interesting, yet loose top rope problems. A psychopath could also traditionally lead a route or two on the East side, though a fall would definately blow some if not all of your pro.

So, what's left is easy highball bouldering problems on really really loose rock.

You can walk up to or off the top, and the view from above is probably the rocks only asset.

Getting There 

Approach time: 10 minutes from the parking pullout, 1 minute from the beach.

Once down on the beach, it's the big rock in the center of the bulge.
