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.
See Rock & Ice magazine #116, Summer 2002 for a thorough guide and more classic work by Scott Kimball!!
There is a good conglomeration of 5.10 routes in this small alcove.
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. Govt. 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. This stone lies fairly low and north in the group and is likely best approached from the Baldpate parking lot (Romer Rouse trailhead). It's best to ascend and pass Slot Rock and Woodstone on the right and then turn left and pop up into the Woodstone-Half&Half alcove.
Note: Half and Half is outside RMNP and can be accessed without entering RMNP lands. However, if you park in a RMNP trailhead lot or enter via RMNP trails, you do need a timed entry permit.
