About Luffenholtz Beach:

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 dependent but is a good alternative to Moonstone if that area is crowded. The rock is "decent" but not as good as Houda or Moonstone.
Nearest town or city: Trinidad, CA
Directions: Exit 101 to Westhaven Road. Turn towards the beach, then turn right and follow the scenic road until the second Luffenholtz Parking lot. Go down the stairs and walk down the beach to the end.
Latitude, Longitude: 41.04013, -124.12027
Access Issues: On a very high tide (+7 or more), the base of the rock will be flooded. Also there is a creek to cross to get down the beach.
Camping: No
When to Climb: Autumn Spring Summer
Quantity of Climbs: Day
