Description

This crag lies directly uphill from Slot Rock and provides a wonderful group of bolted routes in one small alcove. More exactly, it is uphill of Woodstone, yet below Sharkfin. Some routes in the area are under 100', so you can rap off with a single 60m rope. 'Rouge Element' however is about 130' and requires a summit walkoff. Although while at the top of that rock, you can tag a few other routes such as: Yellow Butterfly & Blood in the Water on the Sharkfin for a nice tour.

Getting There

This stone lies fairly low and north in the group and is likely best approached from the Baldpate parking lot (Romer Rouse Trail Head). 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.

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.

During summer 2018, route development at the Woodstone and Half and Half crags resulted in nearly a dozen new sport routes (see recent and evolving posts for Woodstone and Half and Half). 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 directly via a mellow path through the woods and some talus without crossing any private property. It takes about 30 to 35 min to hike up and only 20 to 25 min to hike down. I posted an approach map and description on the MP pages for Woodstone and Half and Half. Sep 30, 2018
