The highest bouldering rock at Mickey's beach reaches animpressive 30 feet above ground, and contains tough and some easyroutes on all sides but the ocean side. You can find V1ishclimbing on almost all sides of the rock.

Climbing on the west side of the rock will probably eventually betopropeable, as the landings down below aren't too friendly to 30foot falls.

Tide Dependant, this rock will sometimes have starts in thewater, so watching the tide charts is essential to a goodclimbing experience at all rocks on Mickey's Beach, except forthe west face of the main rock. The picture below is taken at ahigh tide, though the section shown is usually beach until wellpast the leftmost boulder.

Getting There 

Approach time: 5 - 15 minutes.

From the main rock, this is the largest rock on the beach to thewest. Walk down the pathway, or the ramp from the climbingsections on the main rock onto the beach, and it is the 30 foottall pointy rock on the beach.

This face no longer exists in it's originality. A huge chunk broke off over a year ago now.
