BETA PHOTO: Dawn Beach Estates Crag
Sunrise sweetheart on lef...
This area is sunny before noon, shaded after noon.
Rock is seawall limestone, some granite, very pocketed from sea spray.
The rock can be sharp and brittle in places, but the overall quality is enough for fun climbing.
There are very easy routes, some intermediate, and nothing expert. This is a fun area for light climbing and scrambling.
Enter through the entrance to Dawn Beach Estates, follow the entry road all the way down to the bottom of the hill where it ends at a left or right intersection. This intersection is the front yard of the dilapidated house.
Follow the yard around the left of the house going toward the ocean, there is a retaining wall between the yard and the ocean cliff.
To the left as you face the ocean you can see the anchor boulders and down into the crag.
Rappel down from your anchors, (you need to set up your own) to go top roping.
If you want to solo or lead, scramble down the inclined section to the right side of the crag. There is enough flat area at sea level to belay, as well as substantial stones and horn to have a belay anchor.
