Thinking about breaking this up into a few subcatagories. What do ya'll think? Jun 13, 2013

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. Oct 6, 2013

Adam T.-You may be referring to Becky's Knob which is a 10a face far right of the crack. There is a 11a face (+ variations) in-between Elsa's and Becky's, too. All good smear problems if I remember correctly. Mar 1, 2015
