This bolder is a 10 ft boulder located right on the waters edge. This boulder can be climbed in lower tides and offers a very nice V6/5 problem on its north side. The other sides include easier and one harder problem on it's steepest and often most wet face, the seaside. There are two more boulders of decent size here too. One boulder has climbs up to V2 and the other a fun V3 on pockets. A alternate sit start to this one makes a V4. I would like to say that this area is nice, but is not a destination area. If you are on the west side of the peninsula and are around Toi, check it out. If not, wait until you are. This is what I would call a drive by area.

Getting There 

Odoihama Beach is located just north of Toi on the west side of the Izu peninsula. There is a small swimming beach access area that has a very large parking area. Park here and walk north to the edge of the concrete steps. Walk along the rocks beach over a red rock "wall" until you come to the largest boulder in this area.
