Pirates Cove, 08/11/2012

On Saturday the 11th of August we decided that we wanted to go to the beach for the day, so it looked like it was going to be a no climbing day.  Initially we were planning on going to Newport Beach, but when we got there we couldn't find any parking anywhere, so we decided to head down to Corona Del Mar to go to the beach there.  Luckily we were able to find some parking there, and we decided to go over to the Pirates Cove side of the beach instead of the normal side.  We had never been to Pirates cove, but it ended up being a pretty cool place (all though it was quite crouded). 

We had a good day at the beach, and I decided to put it here on my blog due to the fact that I did climb one of the boulder problems at the beach, a V0 called "Tin Man".  The problem was okay, and did have some fun moves, but the rock is so slick it's not even funny.  The rock is just wet from all of the humidity, and the holds have chalk on them from other climbers, but becuse of the wettness the chalk ends up creating this slimey slippery layer on the holds.  I don't think I'd ever go to Pirates Cove just for climbing, but it was fun messing around a little bit while at the beach.
