Auburn quarry is going to be 109 degrees which is way to hot as the rock is exposed, this could impact the belay and carabiners so I am making the conscious decision to go toward the beach where it is cooler to Goat Rock and Sunset Boulders and Sonoma State park beach near Jenner (past Bodega Bay). Beautiful crags in the middle of grass surrounded by sand and beautiful ocean. Breathtaking. 6 TR routes, easy to intermediate. 11 bouldering problems. great rock to climb :)
What do you need?
*Helmet, harness & shoes.
*Rope, quick draws
*Snacks and water.
*Layers in case it gets cold
Carpools encouraged. Bring lunch like a picnic.
I will Be waiting at the dirt Parking lot Entrance. We can all meet here and then be on our way to start climbing!
