Another area classic! Steep, exposed climbing above the water.
There are actually 2 (or more) variations. The plumb line climbs pockets up a steep face to the right-hand side of a small roof that caps the route (5.10c). Another variation steps left at a large ledge mid-height and climbs a shallow corner before traversing back right beneath the summit cap (5.10a/b).
Around to the right of the Main Face, overlooking the ocean.
Bolted top anchor

The 10's on the side are way more fun than the face climbs. Watch out for loose rocks and tourists who wander right underneath you.

Lots of shenanigans while we were there this past week, the kind of stupid stuff we rarely see at the crags at home.
Protection is three bolted hangers for the more center version, and two bolts with hangers for the left-most route (5.10b), not listed on Mountain Project. The bolts all look kind of dodgy, and I wouldn't trust my life to them without slinging a rock with some webbing and long runner for a third/fourth piece of protection.
