Description:

Scamper the 5.5 section up to wall, then veer left about half way and up toward the topout roof, then right and around the roof to exit. Variation - instead of traversing left or right to exit the roof, head straight up through a very reachy crux to the anchors. 5.11a/b?

5 out of 5 stars Excellent TR right on the ocean!

Fun, beautiful climb. Fell once, backed down 10' and finished up. There's a nice little ledge half way down the rappel. I sat here and enjoyed the beautiful beach view, good place to smoke a joint :)

3 out of 5 stars Wicked pendulum at the crux!

TR'ed this as the last route of the day. I set my anchors on the bolts to climbers right of the roof. First 1/3 is about 5.5-5.7 ish and chossy. Watch out for beach strollers in rock fall danger. Used the 1-2 finger pockets and edges to get 15' below the top (10a), then underclug the roof and exited to the right. Big, short pendulum at the roof. You're 6' below your anchors and 8' to the left. I fell there twice, probably because I was psyched out. Excellent climb.

4 out of 5 stars Birthday Beach Climbing Party

We set the TR anchor to the right of the roof. My friends finished by going up to the left with the crack, under the roof, then to the right. I had a real hard time with that, so I did a swing over to the right and was able to reach the anchor that way. I think by swinging and combining the 10c with the 11 variation, I skipped all the hardest cruxes.
