Mickey's Beach - Bouldering, Top roping (Some of the TR routes are challenging)

Hey guys

Wanna do some bouldering in the sun and on the sand?

Let's get our climb on at  Mickey's Beach. :)

For those who haven't been before, just keep walking south on the beach until you see boulders.

Of course we have to be sensitive to high tide.

We can do lunch/make sand castles and get back on the rocks afterwards. Or you can bring your swimsuit and just keep on climbing!

If you've got a crash pad you can bring

Directions:

1 mile south of Stinson Beach on Hwy. 1. Park at a huge turnout/red dirt parking lot. Take the trail down to the rocks and the nude beach.

Latitude, Longitude:

    Hi Michael, I removed myself from the RSVP list, still coming but not sure if by 9 am, and don't want to rob the spot from somebody with bells on.

      Hi all, obviously I was a no show yesterday, and want to apologize for not arriving with the extra pair of shoes in hand :(. It was pretty late by the time I finally made it to the city, so we ended up doing the tourist thing instead. I look forward to the next one, and hope everyone had a great time.

    It seems out of my depth, but if I can make it on Sunday, I'd love to be a spectator. Is that allowed?

    July 7, 2013

    hey Guys. If we decide to go to another cool climb after tide comes in I suggest Ring Mountain in Tiburon (near Sausalito). Here is a link to routes:

    Everyone have a ride?
    Back up plan if weather turns south or tide comes in 2 quick:
    1) Hang out on stinson beach/bask in sun/eat lunch
    2) Head to Indian Rock in Berkjeley and boulder than eat/
    3) Head to Tiburron to split rock/turtle rock to boulder/top rope/eat

    See you kids on Sunday :)

    Hey I'm new to meetups. Is this strictly limited to 12 people? If so, sign me up for the next trip to Mickey's :)

    is someone going from SF? I want to gooo but is so far and dont have a car :(

    July 5, 2013

    • miranda

      I have an extra, relatively new medium women's harness, and some old size 6 1/2 shoes for Arianna (or whomever). They're in my car, so just let me know and I'll wander down the beach with them.

      July 6, 2013

    • Arianna G.

      uhh really?? I have harness but I could use the shoes :) Miranda thank you so much

      July 6, 2013

  • Vitaly K.

    I'm driving from Redwood City and can take a couple more along the way if you don't mind a small dog. Dogs are technically not allowed, but I think I can get away with this.

    July 3, 2013

    • Vitaly K.

      Jason, yes, I still have room. Email me your address and phone number and we'll just need to figure out pick up time.

    I'll be bringing my crashpad :)

  • Michael D.

    Hey Guys. we changed time from 10am to 9am as this would give us more time to climb before tide comes in. As a reminder this place only has a few moderate top rope routes then they get hard> Also, the sport routes range from 5.11 b/c and up so unless you lead at that levels so you might focus on Bouldering from V0 on up. After 1 we might think about hitting up Stinson beach to lie on the beach or eating someone nice there in so consider bringing bathing suits :)

    July 4, 2013

  • Nancy R.

    I heard some people want to meet earlier since high tide is at 1pm?

    July 3, 2013

    • Michael D.

      totally and there is a 5.6 and 5.9 you should try :)

      July 3, 2013

    • miranda

      Great!

      July 3, 2013

  • Michael D.

    Who else has a rope besides me? I have 3 and anchor building gear. Kevin, can Andy and I drive with you? :)

      I have 2, as well as anchors and a crash pad.

      July 3, 2013

    • Konstantin

      I have a rope and a crash pad too, but I am on the waiting list, so this is kind of a bribe... :)

      July 3, 2013

  • Konstantin

    Will there be any TR option?
    (Of course I get off of the waiting list first.. )

    July 3, 2013

    • Michael D.

      yes. check out link way above. just come

      July 3, 2013

    • Konstantin

      I'd love to, but there are already no spots left!

      July 3, 2013

  • Ruth H.

    This sounds great. Is somebody driving there from SF and has a space left in the car?

    July 3, 2013

    • Michael D.

      nancy and ruth maybe? If Kevin takes Andy and I it will be a tad crowded with our gear Ruth. i mean we can do it but Nancy has room and she is a doll :)

      July 3, 2013

    • Ruth H.

      Hi Nancy and Michael, Nancy, it would be great if you could take me along in your car. Just let me know when you want to leave and where we should meet. I am living in the Mission 18th/Lexington, but I can come wherever it is convenient for you.

      July 3, 2013

  • Nancy R.

    I haven't really climbed outdoors before. Would it be okay if this is my first time?

    July 3, 2013

    • Michael D.

      Hey Nancy. There is a 5.6 and 5.9 which are doable. the rest are 5.11c and above. Bouldering is fun to :)

    This website gives an idea of what the tides would be like, which could be a problem depending on where we climb. Seems like high tide is 1PM.
