Luffenholtz Beach

California > Northwest California

Description

Luffenholtz Beach is a picturesque rocky cove just north of the Houda Point beach. The climbing consists of some limited bouldering and about a dozen leadable climbs. This area is not as dependent on the tides as Houda Point and is a great alternative while waiting for low tide. The rock is "decent" but not as good as Houda or Moonstone.

Getting There

The Luffenholtz parking area is .8 miles north on Scenic Drive from the Westahaven exit on 101.
