Morgan Bay has all year round rock climbing. Winter has low rain fall & is very mild. In summer Morgans is hot, but there are shaded crags & the sea breeze cools everything to acceptable levels. Morgan Bay gets more rain in summer, but the crags dry very quickly. Best possible conditions are: westerly berg wind with equinox low tide. When all these conditions are in a line…it’s time to get down to sea level stuff.
