The Climb

Just before one gets to The Cave area, on the right is a thin fingers crack (the lower half obscured by other boulders). This is the deceptively hard Digit's Delight. It approached from either side, as it rests in the middle of the forthcoming switchback.

Definitely deserves 4 stars, one of the best finger cracks at Woodson where good footwork really pays off. Has anyone climbed the seam on the boulder to the left? Apr 24, 2016

I usually find Woodson ratings right on to slightly stiff, but this is pretty soft for 10d. Nonetheless, it's a sweet climb. Mar 4, 2011

I can't imagine rating this route anything less than four stars. This is another Woodson classic. A poor sequence will definitely beat you down but avoiding the bad sections accompanied with good footwork brings out the best in this one! Feb 11, 2009

The bolts added to TR this are a nice convenience. Thanks for the update mschlocker May 23, 2006

There are bolts for the TR so no need to bring any fancy gear if that's the plan. Apr 29, 2006
