Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
Photograph caption reads: "Those persistent nude bathers (and others) at Pirate's Cove Beach were given some peace of mind yesterday when officials determined that a crack in the cliff above the beach ... was an immediate hazard and blew it up ... Photo ... is the end result which now allows safe access to the cove. The area is a popular nude sunbathing spot in the Malibu area. Geologists were called to the cliffs to inspect the 14-by-10 foot-long crack and after clearing the beach, blew it up with 175 pounds of dynamite. A sheriff's department spokesman said that the property is in the process of being bought by the state". "Sheriff deputies stand by as explosive experts blow up large rock that was threatening to fall on Pirate's Cove". Photograph dated: Sept. 8, 1978.
