  • Description 

    The rocks are very sun-beaten and depending on snow run-off, water levels can be high and quite chilly.

    Getting There 

    Take highway 2 east or west and just before (if heading east) or just after (if heading west) mile marker 33, park in the gravel pull-out. Walk east about 2 telephone poles worth of distance and on the other side of the road there is a faint path that will lead you beyond a private property sign. Follow that path to the beach where the climbing is found. The first massive boulder you see during approach is the Beach Boulder. Further east will lead you to Moon and others in development.

    I could not find any documented climbs or settings for most of this area (minus the Beach Boulder). We spent some time playing and decided to share what we came up with. If these have already been established please let me know and FA/ratings will be corrected.
