8 Photos from a Foggy Day of Bouldering at Fort Ross

Bouldering on the beach. Watch out for the tide!

I wish that we would have had better weather during our time at Fort Ross. Definitely a place I would like to return to and photograph. Maybe at sunset?

The main boulder is right there on the water. You literally have to watch out for the waves coming up on the shore otherwise they might wipe out your camp. But it's an awesome spot with even more awesome routes.

There's also a traverse along the back wall if you're looking for something a little bit more mellow. And apparently there is another bouldering spot around the bend, but we didn't go around far enough due to tides. But it's okay.

We ended up not staying long while we were there. Fog rolled in and it was misting really badly during the day. When we returned the next morning at dawn, there was thunder, lightning, and the holds were damp. We made the most of it though and got some really cool stuff still. Unfortunately, no lightning showed up while we were actually climbing. Or is that fortunate? I don't know honestly, some photos with a climber and lighting bolts in the distance would have been pretty epic. Anyways, have a peek at what we got up to on the beach!
