DescriptionThis 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.
Several multi-pitch classics are found here such as (from west to east) Topographic Ocean (5.10d), Drake's Passage (5.10a R), and the popular Hand of God (5.11b or 5.11+).
The climbs here generally face south, although there are a few exceptions. The granite here is quite good with most climbs utilizing cracks varying from thin fingers to chimneys with a bit of OW for flair (no pun intended). Lead protection bolts are rare here (as in most of Woodfords) and only a few climbs need or utilize them. So bring a big rack, a 70m rope is handy, and don't forget your sense of adventure.....there's lots to do in the Wood Hood!
Getting ThereThe 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.
