Stage Fort Park
About Stage Fort Park:
Stage Fort Park offers several routes on two rocks, both of which are about 40ft. tall.
Tablet Rock, named for the plaque on its face, has several established TR routes and endless bouldering including plenty of highballing. Setting TR anchors may be difficult as bolts on top of the face have been ruined and trees are set far back.
Beach Buttress, located on the other end of Cressent Beach, has a couple of TR/lead routes. Start may be wet at high tide.
