Description

This is a "superarea" created to help convey to climbers  that these 3 crags lie very close to each other and could represent a single destination. As revealed in the location maps and photos posted below, climbers can plant their gear in the alcove between Woodstone and Half & Half crags and from there choose from nearly 20 sport routes and 15 trad routes. Detailed information concerning the climbing routes can be found under the area postings for the Woodstone, Half & Half, and Slot Rock crags.

Getting There

Since summer 2018, route development at the Woodstone, Half & Half, and Slot Rock crags resulted in more than a dozen new sport routes. This also resulted in a path through the woods on U.S. Government land from the overflow parking for Lily Lake. The hike to Woodstone, Half & Half, and Slot Rock can now be done via a friendly path through the woods and talus near the crags without crossing any private property. It takes about 30 to 35 minutes to hike in and only 20 to 25 minutes to hike out. A map and description for this approach is posted on MP.

Note: Woodstone, Half and Half, and Slot Rock are 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.
