Climb the "flake" past a bolt then up through a few juggy moves to the tenuous top out. Bring screamers. Old bolts.


All of the Luffenholtz climbs are located at the north end of the beach. Descend the stairs, cross the creek and walk about 200 yards to the crags. IUD is the first route you will come to on the southwest face of the first "climbable" formation.


4 bolts. Tie off shrubs for the anchor. Walk off.

no need to tie off any sketchy "shrubs" there are two rap-able bolts at the top of the climb that you can access from the top if you have a daisy chain. and really watch out for loose rock!!!!! and big loose flakes!!!! this climb is fragile and awsome!
