Description

A fine traverse from a sit start on the south arete moving low across the face topping out on Rocky Top. Great variety in the moves and holds (from pebbly and edgy crimps to a deep pocket). The crux comes within the first 15 feet passing the bulge. Relatively restful moves across the pod in the center of the face lead to interesting reaches and cross throughs with small feet. Exit via the balancy moves of Rocky Top.

Protection

Pads and spotters nice, especially for the exit.

First, there are plenty of three star problems at Carter and Srg. Woody's is one of them. Second, if all you want to do is bag of the problems, go do it somewhere else. Apr 29, 2002

Sometime in the spring of 2002, a hold broke on this problem/route making it harder. The hold was a sidepull right before the topout on Rocky Top. It is now much more sustained at the end, and a more difficult line. However, in my opinion, it is even better than before. Jul 30, 2002

This problem broke once again some time during the summer of 2014. The new break is the crimp at the second crux right next to the old break. This sequence has gotten much harder and will make the already pumpy problem that much more so. I was able to work out new beta but did not put it all together yet, so I am not sure if a grade change is appropriate. Since it is getting V8- consistently, and I am sure that it is not going to be V9, I would say V8 would be in the right ballpark.

Edit: finally got back out and sent this again, and I am going with V8. However, its length makes it feel more like a route than a boulder problem, and 13- might be a better grade; very pumpy. Sep 15, 2014
