The P.O. Cliff is one of the biggest areas of stone in the park. It faces the ocean and provides amazing panorama views down the coast. The first route on this cliff was called California Coast named after a thin crack system resembling....The California coastline. It was climbed at A3 by Bruce Price and Frank Jager in 1968.

Getting There
