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.

Rock Climbing Photo: Traverse from right to left

Juguysko Traverse V3 6A  California : Redwood Coast : ... : Houda South
Nice traverse starting right and ending left. Only accessible earlier in the season when sand levels are low. Crux is the transition from the mid section to the final section of the traverse. Final section (Juguysko Jam) can be finished in one of three ways and is its own problem when the sand levels are higher. Stay low for a V5 finish, cut across the middle for a V4 finish, or go high and finish the traverse along the top for a continued V3 finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
