About Lost Rocks:

Huge, smooth, tip-friendly black basalt boulders right next to crashing waves of the northern California coast (tides are not an issue.) Because of an annual shift in sand levels of up to twenty feet, problems are rarely named or graded. Difficulty ranges from beginner to mutant. Leave your pad at home--the sand is a far better cushion when highballing. A truly magical place--sunsets, sea lions, and solitude. A New Note: I always have called this the Lost Boulders. It is an awesome place with great and constantly changing climbs. I encourage anyone to go there. There is camping at Kamp Klamath, off the trails, parking lots looking over the ocean. One night, In my Westy, me and my mud rocked some electric guitar out of the Vanagon. It is worth the stop, check it out, have fun... if you got balls go in the ocean.
