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).

I Be Jammin' 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  CA : Tahoe Vicinity : ... : 4 - Second Alcove
An excellent crack line on the right side of the 2nd alcove. An awkward crux with a wide crack which can be stemmed around down low is protected well with a 4" piece. Continue to the awesome hand crack in the corner above. A second crux is encountered near the top.This is rated 5.10a in my old guide, but I found it to be quite easy for the grade. 5.9 is more accurate....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
