Featured Route For Poison Oak Boulder Area
The boulder on the left is Go With The Flow (5.11c/d).  The route faces east so in this view we enjoy the north side of the rock.

Go With The Flow 5.11c/d 7a 24 VIII E4 6a  CA : San Diego County : ... : Poison Oak Boulder Area
This outstanding route is on the right hand side of the road, past Poison Oak Crack and the large square aid bolder. Starting via cheatstones, there is a 10+ barndoor entry move to a few slightly easier moves, then a series of hard sequential moves up the orange water streak to finish. Highly recommended...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Thinking about breaking this up into a few subcatagories. What do ya'll think?

I agree with breaking it up. It is a huge area, especially compared to the rest of Woodson.

Also, does anyone have any more information about Elsa's Face (5.10a or b)? It is a really fun face climb to the right of Elsa's Crack. Balancey moves with some slopers, crimps, and smearing.
