Description

This small rock outcropping sits above Slot Rock, and below Half & Half Crag and Shark Fin. However, it is rather difficult to separate it from its neighbors from afar, but a couple powerful short routes sit on its uphill east face, and they are well worth the visit!

Getting There

Likely best approached from the Homer Rouse parking Lot, just next to the Baldpate Inn.

Aim for Slot Rock and pass it on its south (right) side. Then pass Woodstone on its south (right) side also and scramble up into The Alcove. (See Half & Half Crag info.)

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. Likely this is best approached from the Homer Rouse parking lot, just next to the Baldpate Inn. Aim for Slot Rock, and pass it on its south (right) side. Then pass Woodstone on its south (right) side also, and scramble up into The Alcove (see Half & Half crag info).

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
