BETA PHOTO: The rock, for the 2 minutes that the nudists clear...


This Bouldering rock is home to several interesting routes, and is worth bouldering at when the sand is low (which is usually winter - late spring.)

It's on the beach, so chances are pretty good that the rock will be in the fog. It might be in the sun, in which case it will probably be windy there.

You can walk off all routes via another rock, or in the summer you can just hop off.

BEWARE that this is in a large nudist area, and there will be sprawls of naked people wandering around during the weekends. If this offends you, you should probably head elsewhere.

Getting There 

From the main parking lot, head down the path to the main rock junction. Head right along the beach for about 150 yards passing several larger boulders that probably have chalk on them. You will pass through a corridor and finally head left back onto the main beach, and this will be Danger Rock.

If you're in doubt, wander around to the beach side where you will see danger stamped on the top of the rock. The is also the last rock of the main Mickey's beach bouldering for several hundred yards.

A comment on the beta pic: the sand is pretty low. Right now (april) the sand is about 18 inches higher, but you can still do the low starts.
