Park at 4th of July creek. Head up 4th of July creek to its confluence with Godwin creek. Go up Godwin creek about a half mile to Jail Break, the first major flow on your left in a large rock corner. The final pitch of Jail Break hasn't formed in several years, and the climb can come and go as it is near the ocean and is Southwest facing.
