Description 

If your looking for high-quality 5.10 cracks then this area should be high on your list of destinations at Woodford's. From thin crack splitters to big-fist burlfests this crag has something for everyone. Also, the various exposures encountered in the 2nd Alcove means that you can climb in either the sun or the shade here throughout the day.


Getting There 

Located just east of the Donnie G, the 2nd Alcove is basically an extension of that wall. Follow the climber's path through the brush up to the nice belay pad found under the distinct pine located at the base of I Be Jammin' (5.10a).

After an opening moves crux that serves up the only mandatory OW moves on the pitch, Quoia the Destroya offers fun, steep moves on solidly wedged flakes. After about 50' make an exposed move left under the bulge (blue camalot helpful) and follow the left-leaning crack to a l...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
