Overhanging, but not too pumpy.
Located about a half mile west of the Fortress, on the south side of the hwy, Cloudburst Canyon hosts some of the best, single pitch climbs in Woodfords. You can chase the shade and cool your feet in the year-round stream, within this beautiful canyon. Test your strength on the ominous and famed One of These Days (5.10), check out the Tiers for a full day of fun, fingery sending, or walk up the backside of the Tiers and get amped for High Energy Wall.
