This wall, or series of walls, contain some of the longest climbs in Woodfords. With routes up to four pitches in length and a wide variety of quality base routes it offers something for everyone.
The Wood Hood is located on the north-side of Highway 88, between the Books area to the west and the Donnie G to the east. It sits a bit higher than either of those areas and is most easily accessed from the east by way of the standard approach trail for the Donnie-G. With careful route-finding it's five minutes from Whisker Biscuit.
