Description:

This is the rightmost route on the beachside face with the arete making things a bit easier if needed. Bolts are slightly runout. Please take note of the rusty bolts/anchors at Pt. Dume due to the wet, corrosive environment.

Descent Options:

Rap via Right Center or Oceanside Right, or walk off via hiking trail.

3 out of 5 stars Run out

Five bolts. The first bolt is hammered flat against the rock. It's possible to thread a sling through.

3 out of 5 stars some fun relaxed climbing

amazing scenery, with some fun easy climbing. Not the greatest workout, but sometimes it's nice to get out there for the sake of an easy approach, good company and better weather.
