Per Bob Siegrist: as of 6/11/20, the parking areas are no longer blocked off. RMNP is open.
Per Matt B: this area is currently closed to all visitors due to temporary RMNP closures. The entire parking area is blocked off. Please do not threaten access to this area by climbing during this closure to all visitors.
One advantage here is that you can often watch the weather coming in from the west.
Per Dana Prosser: the best way to approach the north areas is to turn into parking across from Lily Lake. Instead of going in to lot, continue on the road (heading south), and park where the dirt road ends. Start hiking on signed Twin Sister's trail, and look for faint trail at the first switchback that takes off from the main trail. This winds up through the forest to talus below Lower Great Face.
Per Bob Siegrist: during summer 2018, route development at the Woodstone and Half and Half crags resulted in nearly a dozen new sport routes. This also resulted in a path through the woods on U.S. Gov't. land from the overflow parking for Lily Lake. The hike to Woodstone and Half and Half can now be done via a mellow path through the woods without crossing any private property. It takes about 30 to 35 minutes to hike up and only 20 to 25 minutes to hike down. Bob Siegrist posted an approach map and description on the MP pages for those crags.
