This 40' rock will eventually contain some quality tough sport routes, as the rock is actually stable. The North face contains one really highball route, and also some eventual top rope potential. A chimney on the West side could have some potential for a TOUGH chimney route, but without a top rope, I wouldn't try it!

There are no bolts on the top of this rock, and it's really too bad. Climbing up to the top via a Northwest bulge is currently the safest (NOT SAFE) way up and down.

A good swell probably puts the start of any potential climbing under water.

Getting There 

Approach time fron the parking pullout: 11 minutes.From the beach, 2 minutes.

From the beach, head right past the rock with sport routes on it. After reaching the crest of the bulge, continue downhill, where you willl see this black rock 50 feet past the sport rock.

This is not a route for the faint of heart.Climbing starts on excellent rock with some interesting mantle and undercling moves. As you get near the top, climbing gets simpler, but the quality of rock degrades.Watch your step on the way down. It's a LONG fal...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
