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

Back Door Man takes the west face of the North Pinnacle. Although this is a bolted route it is not a sport route! When Bob bolted it on lead, he broke an ankle and had to come back later to finish the route. Exciting! One of the best routes at Luffenholtz....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
