Description:

The left most route out of 5 routes on the beach side face. There are two start variations that add some difficulty/fun to the route. 1. climb diagonally up the juggy flake on sidepulls and underclings to the first bolt. 2. climb up the clean section of rock just left of the original start on nubs and crimps, traverse right to the first bolt.

Descent Options:

Rap.

3 out of 5 stars edgy

Didnt think this was much tougher than the other face climbs rated 5.7 or 5.8. But it is fun. Can't lead this anymore without a runout of the last 3/4 of the route as the last 3-4 bolts have been removed.

4 out of 5 stars most fun face climb there

this is a nice one to close out the beach side on, before you break down anchors and move em to the sea side. again, it's fun/relaxed climbing and you can't beat being out on the beach.
