Perfect hand crack that is going to feel V1 if your tall and have experience with cracks. Great hand jams and feet. Nice sand landing most don't use a pad but this is a fairly high problem at 20+ feet. The first problem you encounter once you enter onto the beach from the Spring Bay trail and parking lot by Guavaberry Springs.


Biggest boulder in town


pad would be helpful, if you can hit it from that high up

The Spring Bay Crack and all of the routes around it are shaded in the afternoon.
If you are a woman, or have small hands, it's not a perfect hand crack.

There's really no point on this climb where you actually have to jam, but it's an excellent climb nonetheless. V0+ in the guide, and that's what it feels like.
