Luther Rock

Luther Rock is comprised of two side by side walls named Distillery and Detox. It is a (mostly) sport climbing area on the East side of Hwy 89 as you head up to Luther Pass from Meyers. The rock is excellent unique granite and the routes tend to be on the more difficult side (there is one 5.9). The climbing area is fairly cool and gets a decent amount of shade most of the morning and early afternoon, but the approach can be fairly brutal after 10am on summer days. The only climbs that can be top roped are Jonesin' and the unnamed arete just to it's right, although you can top rope several others after leading Betty Ford's Route (5.9). 10 draws plus extras for anchors should be sufficient to get you up everything. There is also a bolted rout on the small spire just under Detox Wall, as well as some interesting cracks.

Directions - From Meyers head south on 89.  After the first right turn just after the first straight uphill section there will be a small pullout on the right side of the road (.9 miles after Portal Road). Locate the cairns and trail across the street and follow straight up to the cliffs (approx 30 minutes).
