Description 

Beautiful remote beach with camping, surfing and great bouldering.
Windward side of Santa Catalina island.
Bouldering offers wide selection on good, overhanging pockets, jugs and Crimps, in a spectacular setting.
Rock is pretty solid but like any newer area holds can come off. Ok landings. Best at low tide!!!
Although a few climbs due exist here. Many more FA's await the adventurous few!!!

Getting There 

From the airport on Catalina isle. Hike down or catch a shuttle down to Little Harbor. About four miles down hill.
Camping does require permit.

Climbing Season

Very cool. I imagine you have the whole place to yourself.

In the 10+ years I've been visiting the place, I have never seen another climber there. The Island hosts a multitude of good climbing spots. Most are just isolated and only accessible by boat.
