Helen bouldering at Houda Point, Humboldt

Description 

Houda point provides some of the best bouldering in the area during the Summer and Fall. When the sand is in and the tide is low, this place rocks! In winter the landings can be a jumble of 2-3 foot cobbles. The rock ranges from slightly sharp to smooth grippy sandstone.

Getting There 

Park at the Houda Point/Camel Rock vista point. This parking area is located .5 mile north of the Westhaven exit on Scenic Drive. A trail leads down to the beach after splitting at the notch, a north and south trail lead down stairs to sea level.

Jugtacular is the name given to this problem by Paul Humphrey and it definitely describes this climb well! Jugtacular starts just around the corner and to the right of the Black Wall Arete. Start low, just to the left of a blocky ledge, and start pulling. Pocketed, interesting jugs(there is a sloper or two as well) will take you straight up through the bulging roof. As you hit the lip, let your feet cut loose and heel hook to more great holds above. This is a tall and exposed line that rages fro...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
