|Morro Rock is a large geological formation called a morro located a few hundred feet off the shore of Morro Bay, California along the California coast. It stands 576 feet tall at the entrance to the Morro Bay Harbor and a causeway connects it with the shore. The area around the base of Morro Rock can be visited. Every few years, someone tries to climb the rock. They are often caught since they usually cannot get down without assistance. Climbers risk more than fines or jail time as the rocks that form Morro Rock are loose and fall down regularly. The base of Morro Rock is littered with fallen boulders.
